**Reiny**, Thursday, May 22, 2008 at 11:04pmif 1 foot = 1/4 inch, then

18.25 feet = 1/4(18.25) or 4 9/16 inches

12.5 feet = 1/4(12.5) or 3 1/8 inches

Argghh! Go metric !

**Reiny**, Thursday, May 22, 2008 at 11:28pmarea = length x width

= 18.25 x 12.5 = 228.125 square feet

or 228 square feet in whole numbers

10% of 228 square feet is 22.8 square feet

so the total is 228 + 23 = 251 square feet.
