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

18 but 32000/18?

- anonymous

if one panel is 16 sq. feet, then how many square feet are 32000 panels?

- anonymous

sorry, if one panel is 18 sq. feet, then how many square feet are 32000 panels?

- anonymous

so I have to use 18x# to get 32000?

- anonymous

if one panel is 18sq, feet. how many sq feet is two panels?

- anonymous

36

- anonymous

so if one panel is 18 sq feet then how many sq feet is 32000 panels?

- anonymous

I am so confuse

- 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

then i got 1777.777777777778

- 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

576000

- anonymous

Finally!. What was so hard to understand about this?

- anonymous

because sometime i don't really understanding what are u trying to tell me that why i got confuse

- anonymous

alright. Read what I am saying carefully.
the total area of the quilt is 576000sq. feet

the storage facility has area 1500 sq.feet

- anonymous

now, if 12 X 12 feet quilt can be folded into 1 cubic feet, right?

- anonymous

so that mean 144

- anonymous

yes, so 144 sq. feet can be folded into 1 cubic feet. so how many cubic feet does 576000sq feet require?

- anonymous

4000

- 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?
