A farmer planted a field of Bt 123 corn and wants to estimate the yield in terms of bushels per acre. He counts 22 ears in 1/1000 of an acre. He determines that each ear has about 700 kernels on average. He also knows that a bushel contains about 90 000 kernels on average. What is the farmer's estimate of yield in bushels/acre?

  1. Actually, I really just need someone to confirm my answer. Not to confident b/c it's been a while since I've done much math.

    22 ears x 700 kernels = 15,400
    15,400 x 1000 = 15,400,000 /90 = 171.111

    Am I close?
