Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Yes the board which is 24.5 inches long is enough to build the bird house which requires 24 in to build the same.Step-by-step explanation:Given:Hodi is building bird house.bird house consist of 4 walls.Each wall needs to be of 5.5 in.Hodi has board = 24.5 in.Now we need to estimate using compatible numbers.The compatible number for 5.5 in. is 6 in.First we will find the total board required to build bird house.total board required is equal to Number of walls in house multiply by length of each wall.Total board required = [tex]\textrm{Number of walls} \times \textrm{length of each wall} = 4 \times 6 =24 in.[/tex]Total board required = 24 inches.Board he has = 24.5 inches.Hence 24.5 in. will be enough to build the bird house which requires 24 in.
