You need to put carpet in a rectangular room that measures 12 feet by 17 feet at a cost of \$27.50 per square yard. Assuming that you can buy precisely the amount of carpet you need, how much will the carpet for the room cost?

I came up with \$1870.00 but Im, not sure if I am doing it right.

• Math -

12 * 17 = 204 square feet

1 square foot = 0.111111 square yard

204 * 0.111111 = 22.67 square yards

22.67 * 27.5 = \$623.43
