Linoleum usually requires other than luan exterior grade plywood for use as a subfloor.

You need a 1/4" plywood or similar product made especially for linoleum use.

Exterior 'luan" has resins and glues that can discolor linoleum.

The underlayment can be cut with a razor knife or with a circular saw.

Fastening is done best using a pneumatic stapler. Manual fastening will required ring shanked underlayment nails set below surface level with a hammer.

7 x 21 = 147 Square feet.

A sheet of underlayment is 32 square feet.

147 divided by 32 = 4.59 sheets.

You will actually need 5 sheets of underlayment for the project.
