Mrs. Garcia's class is making a banner to hang in the school's display case. They started by sewing 7/8 of a yard of gold fabric at the top, 5/8 of a yard of black fabric in the center, and 7/8 of a yard of red fabric on the bottom of the banner.
How many yards of fabric did they use?
If the class adds 1 1/8 more yards of the black fabric as a border, how much black fabric will they use?
If there were 5/4 yards of black fabric left over after the class finished making the banner, how many yards of black fabric did they start with?
All of your answers are right. :-)
