How to make 3 pieces from 2 Carpet cuts from Menards

Hi. I feel a bit silly lol. I measured 3 places that I would like to put carpet. I went to Menards to get it and they cut 2 pieces. I still have the carpet shrink wrapped and I wanted to ask about the math before I went to return or cut on accident.

The 3 measurements are:

9ft wide x 9ft long (81 sqft)

5ft wide x 10ft long (50 sqft)

5ft8in wide x 12ft long (68ish sqft)

The 2 pieces they cut for me are 11ft long 12ft wide (132 sqft) and 7ft long 12ft wide (84 sqft).

This is where I get lost lol. If I add 132+84 and get 216 total sqft, and subtract the sqft of each measurement, I should have around 17sqft left over.

How the hell to I cut it to make that happen. I opened excel and was coloring cells as feet to try to make it work and I can't make all 3 fit.

Any help/guidance is appreciated
