My daughter Kim teaches and notes that the average student uses 75 sheets of paper every week.

A) How many sheets will a student use in a 42-week school year?

B) How many sheets will a class of 26 students use in a week?

Not sure how to approach the problem. Do I first multiply 42x7 for A and 26x7 for B because there are 7 days in a week?
