The Jones family paid $150 to a painting contractor to stain their 12-by-15-foot deck. The Smiths have a similar deck that measures 16 ft by 20 ft. What price should the Smith family expect to pay to have their deck stained?

    Find the price per square foot from the Jones' deck and multiply that by the area of the Smith's deck.

    you get 150/180 as the price per square foot, then multiply this by 320 (square footage of Smith deck)
