a) Calculate the surface area of the block that Peter will paint black.

b) Calculate the surface area of the block that Peter will paint white.

The black paint will cost Peter $0.03 for every 12 cm^2 painted and the white paint will cost Peter $0.04 for every 15 cm^2 painted.

c) If b represents the area of the black surface and w represents the white surface, write an expression for the cost C of painting the block in terms of b and w.

d) Calculate the value of C for Peter's block.

e) Determine whether or not Peter could paint his entire block white for less than or equal to $1.00.

Please could you help me check my answer please, please??

a) black:

area of circle C= 18.849 cm

area of rectange 9x18.849 = 170 cm^2

b) white:

169.641 + 28.274 = 198 cm^2

c) C= b(0.03/12) + w(0.04/15)

d)value of block is:

169,641 x0.03 $ / 12 = 0.42 $

197.901 X 0.04 $/ 15 = 0.527736 $

0.42 + 0.527736 = 0.947736 $

Peter could paint his entire block less than to $1.oo.

Thak you so much for checking and helping:)))
