Daniel needs to purchase 5.6 meters of tape for a project. If each roll of tape contains 80cm andcosts $2.50, what is the total cost of the tape Daniel must buy?

x=cost of tape

meters of tape/cost

5.6/x=.8/2.5

x=17.5

I have the cost is $17.50

Is this correct?

They want us to do a check for this

I am not sure how to do the check? Can you help?

Thanks
