If you are a contractor, I would say if you can't figure what you should charge you probably don't have the experience to do the job and should not be bidding it. And using a $ amount from someone responding sight-unseen on the web can only get you into trouble - either be too high so you lose the job possibly unnecessarily, or worse be too low so you underbid the job and get it but lose your shirt on it.

If you are a homeowner looking for a ballpark number (commonly about a minimum of maybe $200-300 regardless of area unless done as part of a general remodel by the same contractor) about $0.40-1.00/SF if normal sheet product or self-adhesive squares which can be popped up with scraper or pneumatic chisel depending on how well it was glued down (sometimes as low as maybe $0.25-0.40/SF if "plank" vinyl flooring, or is unglued or only edge-glued type sheet or glue is so old it is not holding and comes up in big pieces), and more in $1-2/SF range if asphaltic or epoxy glued down sheet or squares. As much as triple or quadruple that if asbestos linoleum or vinyl flooring or old asbestos asphalt or mastic adhesive andmore like around $500 minimum in that case, for a ACM certified contractor to remove it.

If glued down with adhesive on concrete this would NOT include prepping the concrete to receive a direct finish like polished concrete or paint or epoxy or polyaspartic compound or Naturestone or such, which can run another $1-2/SF commonly with typically a $250-300 minimumm for that.
