108.89/98 = cubics cubics/5 = surface surface/12 = width :)

they charge per cubic yard so let's turn everything into yards first :) length= 12ft = 4yds height= 1/2 ft = 1/6yd so first things first, understand the question: they basically want you to find the width of a box that has a certain volume. the volume would be the total price divided by the price per cubic yard:\[{108.89\over98}=1.11\] so now the info we have is: \[V=l\times w\times h\]\[V=1.11yds~,~~~l=4yds~,~~~w=x~yds~,~~~h={1\over6}yd\]let's put all that info together:\[1.11=(4)\times(x)\times({1\over6})\]\[1.11={2\over3}x\]\[x=1.11\times{3\over2}\]\[x\approx1.67\]so now we have the width is approximately 1.67 yards since your answers are in feet, we have to convert it to feet \[1yd=3ft\]\[1.67\times3\approx5.01\]so now we have the width is about 5 feet and so the answer is B :) Hope this helped, @QuestionsWolf !
