How do I figure out how many studs for a wall?

Individual walls, almost as easy; 24'wall= 1/2 length(12) plus 1/2 that # =(6) plus (1)starter stud = 19 studs.

20' = 10+5+1 = 16 studs

Neat way, Mine is same but different.
Times by 3/4 (.75) plus one for corner, 2 for every window or door, and 1 for every intersecting wall.

In reality I usually get 1 per foot, this allows me to pick the ones that are straightest and send/take the rest back.
