Ms. Sue,
Your first answer is wrong; the others are correct.

Math 
Andrew,
C?

Math 
Ms. Sue,
No.

Math 
Andrew,
It's not D cause it's estimating and we're talking about area so it's B?

Math 
Ms. Sue,
Yes, B. is correct. Do you see why?

Math 
Andrew,
I think I do cause area is finding how much of the space you used on something. So you're trying to find in B how much paper can go into the bulletin board

Math 
Ms. Sue,
Yay! You've got it!

Math 
Andrew,
Thank you

Math 
Ms. Sue,
