H.) A farmer planted a field of Bt 123 corn and wants to estimate the yield in terms of bushels per acre. He counts 22 ears in 1/1000 of an acre. He determines that each ear has about 700 kernels on average. He also knows that a bushel contains about 90 000 kernels on average. What is the farmer's estimate of yield in bushels/acre?

22 * 700 = 15,400 kernels

90,000 / 15,400 = 5.844 bushels in 1/1000 acre

5.844 * 1,000 = ??? bushels per acre
