Q:
# Jayden wants to lay sod on his front yard and on half of his back yard. his front yard has a length of 50 feet and a width of 80 feet. his back yard has a length of 10 feet and a width of 30 feet. how many square feet of sod does jayden need to purchase?

Accepted Solution

A:

The first thing we must do for this case is to calculate the area of both yards.

We have then:

front yard:

A1 = (50) * (80)

A1 = 4000 feet ^ 2

Back yard:

A2 = (10) * (30)

A2 = 300 feet ^ 2

"Jayden wants to lay sod on his front yard and on half of his back yard"

Then, the total amount will be:

A = A1 + (1/2) A2

Substituting:

A = 4000 + (1/2) (300)

A = 4000 + 150

A = 4150 feet ^ 2

Answer:

jayden needs to purchase 4150 square feet of sod

We have then:

front yard:

A1 = (50) * (80)

A1 = 4000 feet ^ 2

Back yard:

A2 = (10) * (30)

A2 = 300 feet ^ 2

"Jayden wants to lay sod on his front yard and on half of his back yard"

Then, the total amount will be:

A = A1 + (1/2) A2

Substituting:

A = 4000 + (1/2) (300)

A = 4000 + 150

A = 4150 feet ^ 2

Answer:

jayden needs to purchase 4150 square feet of sod
