A drama teacher needs to make 6 costumes for dancers in a play. Each costumes takes one and a half meters of cloth.The cloth is sold only by the yard.What is the best estimate of the number of yards the teacher must buy to make sure she has enough cloth for the six costumes?

6 * 1 1/2 meters of cloth =
6 * 3/2 = 9 meters of cloth. a meter is roughly a yard. so we need about 9 yards. However, a yard is a bit less than a meter, so to make sure, buy 10 yards of cloth.
