Purchased 297 square feet of carpet at $18.50 a square yard, what is the cost?
297 / 9 = 33 yards X $18.50 =$610.50
Do I divide by 3 again to get $203.50?
no, why would you divide by 3?
you correctly converted the square feet to square yards by dividing by 9, and your cost was in square yards.
your cost is $610.50
