The freshman class is building a float for homecoming.One side of the float has a shape of a parallelogram with base of 12' and height of 6'. To complete the float the class must buy tissue to cover the side. It takes 3 boxes of tissue to cover each foot. If each box costs $ 0.50, what's the total cost of tissue to cover one side?

A B= bh = 12 * 6 = 72ft^2,
sqrt(72) = 8.48ft,
T = 8.48FT * 3Boxes/Ft = 25.5 Boxes,
C = 25.5boxes * 0.50/box = $12.73.
