I have a math problem where I am trying to carpet a hallway of an irregular shape.The cost of the carpet is \$ 10.80
a sq.yd. How many square yds. will I need? I also need to know the perimeter
for string molding. Can you help me.
The measurements are 6ft,2ft,3ft,8ft,8ft,1ft,2ft, and 4ft.
The string molding is \$5.75 a strip.

I assume that the measurements you give are various widths of the hallway. If so, how far do each of these widths continue in the hallway?

If not, repost with the data more accurately expressed.
