Math

A quilt design uses parallelogram-shaped pieces that have a base measure of 6 inches and a height of 8 inches. If 15 pieces are used in the quilt, what is the total area of the parallelogram-shaped pieces in the quilt?
A) 170 in.
B) 180 in.
C) 210 in.
D) 240 in.

6 * 8 * 15 = 720 in

But as you can see, 720 isn't a answer.

  1. Find the area of one piece.
    Area=base*height=3*4=12inches^2.
    multiply it by 15
    12*15=180inches^2

  5. Hmmm. Note also that the answers are linear, but area is in^2.
    I suspect these answers are for some problem involving perimeters.
