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.
