Ok thats a neat chart thanks... Now what kind of carpet should I get Im leaning towards the Stretchy kind

That’s based upon what you’re needing it for. I know for just a straight box you may want to use the backing. The other is used for odd angels and what not. You could use either does not really matter. I am sure you are worried based upon the cost. But like I said you can use either one. :D Hope that helps answering your questions.

You know a yard is 36" so add up the height/depth x 2, plus more for the sides since you box is almost as wide as the 54" width. Probably need 7 yards...
