Farmer Joe has a square piece of property surrounded by a fence. On 0.5 of the fenced property there is corn growing. On 0.6 of the remaining fenced area there are tomatoes planted. Which expression can be used to determine how much of the fenced area has tomatoes planted on it?

    .5x.6?

    Nope.

    0.95 * 0.6 = 0.57 = 57%

  • math - ,

    if fenced area is 1,
    .5 has corn, leaving .5 remaining

    .6 of .5 has tomatoes, so yes, .5*.6 = 30% has tomatoes.

    Not sure where the 95% came from, unless misreading the problem as 5% has corn.
