Granite counter question

I am having my kitchen renovated, and I'm looking at having a granite counter installed. one quote was 55 dollars a square foot and the other quote was 112 dollars per linear ft. My question is, which quote offers the best value?
What's the difference? Sq ft or Linear ft?
The counter is approximately 101 " x 27". Any help is appreciated.

Linear foot is the actual length of your countertop space. Square foot is the length times the width of the countertop space. Traditional countertops are 26' wide. So basically you will have twice as much square footage as liner feet. In other words the two quotes are very similar price wise.

Okay, I got it, based on the two different measures. crunching the numbers, linear foot is actually 30 dollars cheaper. most counters standard at 26"?
I suppose if the counter was wider than 26", then the linear foot formular wouldn't work. short money either way. Thans for the information
