So that means company B sells it for a $1 per cubic foot, right?

Well... if there are three feet in a yard, you'd multiply the cost of company A by 3, correct?

Okay, so that's in terms of cents. Also, the answers are in terms of cents, so you'll want to convert company B to cents. So, company A is 33 cents per yard, while company B is 300 cents. Do you know what to do from there?

With practice, it'll become better. Latin is my best subject, but I used to have to study A LOT for it. When I didn't study in my Freshman year, I got like 75s, maybe 80s if I was lucky. I got into the habit of studying, which improved my memory a lot. This year, Junior year, I don't even study anymore and I get around a 99 on everything. It just became second nature to me. Other topics, however... not as easy :P

Hmm... apparently, from Googling, a cubic yard is 27 cubic feet. I'm trying to solve it and not getting anything, so that's probably why. The math has to be reworked a bit, then. It's 300 cents for 27 cubic feet, and 11 cents for one cubic foot. If you wanted 27 cubic feet, or a yard, from company A, it would be 297 cents. The reason being, is that... let me draw it out, unless you understand why it's 297 cents?

u may draw it out

I think the reason a cubic yard is 27 feet is because it's cubic... yes, there are three feet in a yard, but you have to cube that. So, 3^3 = 27.

And you're welcome! So, we figured out that company A sold 27 cubic feet, or a cubic yard, for 297 cents. Meanwhile, company B sold the same amount for 300 cents. So, you multiply them by 20, since you want 20 yards of gravel. Then you subtract the answers. So, 20(300) - 20(297) = 60. That's all! Understand?
