A dining room floor has an area of 52 yards. Alice wants to cover 3/4 of the floor with carpet. How many 4 square yards of carpet does she need?

• Math -

If the floor has an area of 52, it must be in square yards.

To find how much she needs multiply 52 times 3/4 since she only wants to cover 3/4 of the floor.

Now, is there a second part of the question asking for how many pieces of 4 square yards does she need? If so, they divide your previous answer by 4.
