3. iheartfood

L x W.... meaning ?

4. Selena2345

length x width

5. iheartfood

good! So what is ur length x width? (they give u the values in the problem!)

6. Selena2345

15 x 8 right

7. iheartfood

yup and what do u get?

8. Selena2345

15 x 8=120

9. iheartfood

good, now multiply it by 3.75 because ur area is 120, which means 120 sq ft... so per sq.ft is 3.75, and there's 120 square feet. so 3.75 x 120 = ?

10. Selena2345

3.75 x 120=450
