I suppose math and physics may apply here but a bolt of cloth is up to 
100 yards of fabric wrapped around a cardboard core. Google "bolt of 
cloth" for an image.

If Mike needs 200 yards of fabric for his tee shirt then I suspect he 
also needs custom-made door frames and chairs. Frankly, I don't believe it.
