A carpenter purchased 25.25 feet of hardwood at $25.20 per foot, and 3 types of trim molding:
2.6 feet $1.90 per foot, 2.8 feet
at $3.90 per foot, 7.5 feet at $4.90 per foot.

How much did he spend on this purchase?

    25.25 * 25.2 = ?
    2.6 * 1.9 = ?
    2.8 * 3.9 = ?

    Okay, so after I added up the total sums together i got $688.91 that was spent on the purchase. Is this correct?

  • Math - ,

    It can't be correct.

    The hardwood alone cost $636.30
    25.25 * 25.2 = $636.3

  • Math - ,

    I doulbe checked my math several of times just to make sure I gave the correct answer

    25.35*25.2= $636.30
    2.6*1.9=$4.94
    2.8*3.9= $10.92
    7.5* 4.9= $36.75

    636.30 + 4.94 + 10.92 + 36.75= 688.91

    So am I correct, or am I doing something wrong still?
