PARCC Measurement Practice Problems

1. What will it cost to carpet a room with indoor/outdoor carpet if the room is 10 feet wide and 12 feet long? The carpet costs 12.51 per square yard.

1. A: The area of the room is equal to the product of 10 ft and 12 ft, or 120 ft'. 120 ft' = 13.3 yd', so the total cost is equal to the product of the area of the room, or 13.3 yd' and $12.51 (the cost per square yard). It will cost $166.80 to carpet the room.
