Question Checked Baggage: How-to determine 62 linear inches ?

Hello,

I am investigating flying with Cape Air (CO partner), and the route is SJU - STT. I was told it was a small aircraft and the checked in baggage is 62 linear inches.

How do you calculate this? We have a large roller suit case that we use to travel overseas with, but we never heard of this 62 linear inches rule.

Can some one help enlighten?

Thanks in advance.

Checked Baggage
In general, Continental Airlines will accept up to two pieces of checked baggage with a maximum weight of 50 pounds (23 kg) per bag and a maximum outside dimension of 62 inches (157 cm) per bag in exchange for the applicable service fees. Outside dimension of a bag is equal to the width + height + depth of the bag added together.
