Conversion Double Check

posted by .

Scary thing is I am an adult...
If the cost is $4.95 sq yd and the roll is 33 1/3 yards how much does it cost for the roll if it is 24" wide 36" wide etc? What is the conversion formula?

    Ok, I see the real problem now. The roll is 33 1/3 yards LONG. What is the price for the roll?

    Width=24in=24/36 yard=2/3 yard.

    Area of cloth on the roll: length*width=
    = 33 1/3 * 2/3=200/9 yards

    cost of the roll=area*price/area
    = 200/9 * 4.95 dollars=990/9=110 dollars
