Dana buys a piece of carpet that measures 20 square yards. Will she be able to completely cover a rectangular floor that measures 12 ft 6 in. by 16 ft 6 in.? Explain why or why not

Answer:

no. the area of the floor is 12.516.5= 206.25 sq ft. there are 9 sq ft in a sq yd, so 209= 180 sq ft. She doesn’t have enough to cover the floor
