1. Making sense of your typing:

"Matt is cutting quilt squares measuring 3 inches on each side. He wants to use them to make a rectangular wall hanging measuring
1 yard by 2 1/2 feet. How many quilt squares does he need?"

The wall hanging is 36 inches by 30 inches, both are multiples of 3, so
there is no partial squares needed
the area of that hanging is 1080 square inches
each of the small squares has an area of 9 square inches, so
he needs 1080/9 or 120 of those squares

or, we can put 12 squares along the side measuring 36 inches
we can put 10 squares along the shorter side of the wall hanging, so
we need 12*10 or 120 small squares.
