**drwls**, Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 7:35pmThe number of square yards is (13/3)^2 = 18 7/8

Multiply that by the cost per yard of carpeting, padding and installation (totalling 21.50/sq yd) for the final answer.

In a real installation, you may have to buy more than 18 7/8 yards, to avoid having to patch together a lot of scrap pieces.

**Damon**, Tuesday, January 20, 2009 at 7:39pm15.50 + 3.50 + 2.50 = 21.50 dollars/square yard

a square yard is 3 feet by three feet or 9 square feet.

21.5 dollars/square yard * 1 square ydard/9 square feet = 2.39 dollars / square foot

13*13 = 169 square fee needed

169 square feet * 2.39 dollars /square foot = $403.72

That carpet is too expensive, go to a discount place.
