Can someone please help? Mary's garden is in the shape of a triangle. The base of the triangle is 5.5 feet and its height is 3 feet. If 4 pounds of mulch can cover a square foot of garden, how many pounds of mulch are required to cover the garden?

    find the area of the garden and multiply by the number of pounds of mulch it takes per square foot to cover the garden

    ok, so take that formula and multiply by the number of pounds it takes to cover each square foot of the garden

    so it would be a=1/2 5.5(3) and then multiply that by 4?
