Depends what kind of shingle. For example, a bundle of dimensional shingles will cover less that most bundles of standard 3 tab shingles.

Some manufactures have 4 and 5 bundles per square.Those heavy weight shingles have a larger exposure area.Bigger shingle,more bundles but same coverage per square.

Post your actual ridge length and rake height (sides) and pitch and I will give you a supply list.Also if the roof line is a hip style or gable style.
