  1. (1/4)in * 6 ft/in = 1.5 ft/side
    so 2.25 ft^2 /square

    Bathroom = 2.25*6=13.5 ft^2
    Bedroom = 2.25*20= 45 ft^2
    Living room = 2.25*28=63 ft^2

    tiny house

    a. 5 * 13.5
    b. (18/9)(45+63)
    c. tile is $5/ft^2, carpet is $2/ft^2

  4. it would cost $480 to tile the bathroom
    It would cost $1536 to carpet the bedroom and living room.
    The tile has a greater unit cost because $5 per square foot for the tile is greater than $2 per square foot for the carpet.

  5. In a blueprint, each square has a side length of 1/4 inches. 1 inch =16 ft

    it would cost $480 to tile the bathroom.
    It would cost $1536 to carpet the bedroom and living room.
    The tile has a greater unit cost because $5 per square foot for the tile is greater than $2 per square foot for the carpet.

  6. 1/4= 0.25
    Now, if we multiply 0.25 by the $5 and 6 square ft, you get 7.5

    The bedroom and bathroom have a square yard total of 48, if you multiply that by the 0.25 and $18, you get $216.

    Then, the carpet is a greater unit cost because it is priced higher than the tile. Though, the tile is cheaper, it’s be a better deal.
