Compute the square footage of carpet needed to cover a room 10' 6" x 12' 3".

Area (to the nearest tenth) = square feet.

Can you explain the steps on how to solve this problem.

• Math -

10'6" = 10.5 feet
12'3" = 12.25 feet

Area = length times width

A = 10.5 * 12.25
A = 128.625 = 128.6 square feet
