When folded, a 12-by-12-foot section of the AIDS Memorial Quilt requires about 1 cubic foot of storage. In 1996, the quilt consisted of 32,000 3-by-6-foot panels. What was the quilt’s volume in 1996? If the storage facility had a floor area of 1,500 square feet, how high did the quilt panels need to be stacked?

No, the quilt consisted of 32000 3 by 6 foot panels. So what is the total area of the quilt?
anonymous
  • anonymous
18 but 32000/18?
anonymous
  • anonymous
if one panel is 16 sq. feet, then how many square feet are 32000 panels?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry, if one panel is 18 sq. feet, then how many square feet are 32000 panels?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so I have to use 18x# to get 32000?
anonymous
  • anonymous
if one panel is 18sq, feet. how many sq feet is two panels?
anonymous
  • anonymous
36
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if one panel is 18 sq feet then how many sq feet is 32000 panels?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am so confuse
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is so hard about this? I explained twice already. If one panel is 18, 2 panels are 36, so 32000 panels are?
anonymous
  • anonymous
then i got 1777.777777777778
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay. read through this slowly and understand what I am saying. One panel has an area of 18 square feet. 2 panels have area 2 times 18 square feet = 36 square feet. so 32000 panels have area = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
576000
anonymous
  • anonymous
Finally!. What was so hard to understand about this?
anonymous
  • anonymous
because sometime i don't really understanding what are u trying to tell me that why i got confuse
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright. Read what I am saying carefully. the total area of the quilt is 576000sq. feet
anonymous
  • anonymous
the storage facility has area 1500 sq.feet
anonymous
  • anonymous
now, if 12 X 12 feet quilt can be folded into 1 cubic feet, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so that mean 144
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, so 144 sq. feet can be folded into 1 cubic feet. so how many cubic feet does 576000sq feet require?
anonymous
  • anonymous
4000
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, so it requires 4000 cubic feet of storage. now, the area of the storage facility is 1500 sq feet. so how high will the folded quilt go?

anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
dude, come on! The height is 4000 divided by 1500. I am sure you can do division
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh my bad i did 4500 not 4000
anonymous
