Jim's lawn is a rectangle that is 15 5/6 yards long and 10 2/5 yards wide. Jim buys sod in pieces that are 1 1/3 yards long and 1 1/3 yards wide. How many pieces of sod will Jim need to buy to cover his lawn with sod?

  1. First find out the area of Jim’s lawn by multiplying 15 5/6 by 10 2/5. Then find the area of the sod piece. Divide the area of Jim’s lawn by the area of the sod piece and then you’re left with the number of sod pieces Jim needs to buy.

    Just note that I haven’t solved it, so it might not be correct.

  2. Howard is mathematically correct and gets an answer of
    92.625 pieces, so you will need 83 pieces

    But... that will leave a real piece-meal of sod pieces
    in the last row and column

    Each sod piece is 1 1/3 yards square.
    So each row will need 15 5/6 ÷ 1 1/3 or 11 7/8 pieces
    so practically you will need 12 pieces to cover the lengths
    For the width you will need 10 2/5 ÷ 1 1/3 or 7 4/5 pieces
    so practically you will need 8 pieces to cover the widths.

    I would buy 96 pieces of sod , with little pieces of trimming left over.
