Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(10*8) + 22(4) + 15(6) + 23(5) = total area of the yard. total area/5lbs = x lbs per 1 area. the last parts I see, but cant right put my finger on it yet :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(total area/1000) times 5 should be the amount of lbs of seed she needs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0once you know the total amount of seed required, figure out how many 2lb bags will do it ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so she has less than 1000 ft^2 acres, so she needs less then 5lb of seeds...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0she has 4.53% of 1000 ft^2 so I would assume she only needs 4.53% of 5 lbs of seeds.... let me check that...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The first part is right 1000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the total square footage of her yard has to be the sum of the parts..... and we did that right :) 10(8) + 10(8) + 22(4) + 6(15) + 23(5)....cant change that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well,you said that it's 5 lbs that she'll need ...so each bag being 2 lbs,then would that be 21/2 bags?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it says she uses 5 lb seeds to do 1000 ft^2....she only has 453 ft^2 right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for every ft^2 she uses how many lbs of seed? 5 x  =  should be the ratio 1000 1

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or: 5 x  =  should be an equal ratio as well 1000 453 5(453)/1000 = 2.265 lbs

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0she needs 1 bag and a a little more..so if she buys 2 bags total, she should be able to do it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if they want an integer answer, I would say 2; if they want a precise anwer, I would go with 1.1325 bags
