Patrick and his dad are building a shed in their backyard. They plan to put extra moving boxes filled with memorabilia they do not have room for in their house. A. His dad does not want the shed to take up too much space in the backyard. Their backyard measures 32 yards by 22 yards. First take 1/8 of the dimensions of the yard. What are the dimensions of the shed in feet? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth. Show and explain all your work. B. How much area will the shed take up in their backyard? Show and explain all your work. C. They have built the shed 7 feet high. Now
Now they plan to paint it blue on the outside. How much paint will they need to buy to paint all 4 walls, if they do 2 coats of paint? (Hint: 1 can of paint covers 250 square feet). Show and explain all your work. D. Patrick and his dad want to put 53 boxes in the shed. Each box measures 24 inches by 18 inches by 24 inches. Will all the boxes fit in the shed? If so, how much space will they have left in feet? Show and explain all your work.
"Their backyard measures 32 yards by 22 yards. First take 1/8 of the dimensions of the yard."
So their shed should be 4 yards by 2.75 yards
"What are the dimensions of the shed in feet?"
we are still working on A
How many feet are in a yard?
similiarly|dw:1357180974532:dw|
In feet the shed should be 12.00 ft by 7.50 ft
OK I am writing this down
So part b reads: "How much area will the shed take up in their backyard?"
For part C lets draw the shed|dw:1357181304571:dw|
They say were gunna build it 7 feet high
they want to paint these 4 walls|dw:1357181419789:dw|
how many square feet is this one|dw:1357181480246:dw|
yep! and there are two of those correct?
those walls... one here|dw:1357181622209:dw| and one here|dw:1357181630269:dw|
They are booth 52.5?
Yes! They are both 52.5 ft^2 because they have the same base and height. So the are we need to paint for those two walls is 52.5 ft^2 + 52.5 ft^2 = ???
but we cant just leave the other two walls blank! we have to paint those ones too.
How many square feet is this wall?|dw:1357181872337:dw|
* remember base * height
and there are two of those...
84 ft^2 + 84 ft^2 =168 ft^2
So the total sq feet that we have to paint is 105 + 168
yep.. but wait a minute that's if we paint it once
they want us to paint two coats...
