    OK We'll assume 38.5 ug/m^3.
    I would convert 8 feet,12.9 feet, and 17.1 feet to meters.
    Then volume of room is length x width x height in m^3.
    Total Be is 38.5 ug/m^3 x volume room = ug Be. That x 1E-6 converts ug Be to grams Be. Convert to mols (mol = grams/molar mass) and that x 6.02E23 = atoms Be.
