You need to put carpet in a rectangular room that measures 12 feet by 17 feet at a cost of $27.50 per square yard. Assuming that you can buy precisely the amount of carpet you need, how much will the carpet for the room cost?

I came up with $1870.00 but Im, not sure if I am doing it right.

  1. 12 * 17 = 204 square feet

    1 square foot = 0.111111 square yard

    204 * 0.111111 = 22.67 square yards

    22.67 * 27.5 = $623.43
