Carpeting costs $20 per square yard. You carpeting a room that has a width of 15 feet for $800. What is the length of the room in feet?

  • Math -

    First, find out the number of square yards in the room by dividing: $800/20 = 40 square yards

    Then, change 15 feet to 5 yards.

    Divide: 40/5 = 8 yards wide

    Change 8 yards into feet.

  • Math -

    First, calculate length (L) in yards. Convert the 15 feet into yards.

    $20(L * 5) = $800

    Once you find L, multiply that by 3 to get the answer in feet.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
