  1. A = LW

    W = A/L

    W = 3.5 / 1.5

    W = 2.333 = 2 1/3 yards

  2. The answer is d. What you do is multiply the two mixed numbers. The first thing you do is convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions then multiply them together, then make them mixed numbers again. Your answer will be 5 1/4.
