Q:
# A bag of fertilizer covers 2500 square feet of lawn. Find how many bags of fertilizer should be purchased to cover a rectangular lawn 410 feet by 65 feet.

Accepted Solution

A:

I bag covers 2500 soft.

Rectangular lawn is 410 x 65. Area= lw=(410)(65)=26650

26650/2500=10.66 so since we cannot purchase .66 of a bag, we will need 11 bags.
