A living room has a length of 18.25 feet and a width of 12 1/2 feet. What would those dimensions be on the architectural drawings, if the scale of 1 ft = 1/4 inch is used? (your answers should be given in 16ths of an inch)

Referring to the dimensions of the previous scale drawing where the length of the living room was 18.25 feet and the width was 12.5 feet

How many square feet are there? square feet (ROUND to the nearest WHOLE foot)

If we added 10 % additional for waste, how many square feet should be ordered?

square feet (ROUND to the nearest WHOLE foot)

How many square yds would this be? ( 1 sq. yd = 9 square ft) (Round to the nearest whole yard)

square yards

Using the rounded value from the previous problem, and if carpeting costs $25.00 a square yard, what would the cost of the carpeting be before tax?
