  1. I think you meant all 3 pillows.

    4 inches times 4 sides = 16 inches

    then 16 inches time 3 pillow = 48 inches

  2. Those are mighty small pillows!

    The perimeter of one pillow is 4 * 4 = 16 inches.

    3 * 16 = 48 inches = ______ feet

  3. maybe they are doll pillows, or maybe just pin cushions ...
