surface density of lipid bilayer

Hello, all:

I have a question about surface density of lipid bilayer. In some papers, the area of membrane is presented by
area/lipid. Do you how to calculate this area of membrane? For example, for one simulation containing 64 lipid molecules (each layer has 32 lipids), the area of membrane is calculated by area/64 or area/32?

Thanks a lot!
