Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[6.3*2.5=15.75ft ^{2}\]It's B. Confirm it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1^If B were in ft^2 it would absolutely be correct...however we need to convert that to inches^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which as @Vocaloid has pointed out...can be done by multiplying your answer in ft^2 by 144in^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're wrong. This is just simple area. Just multiply the two sides together and there is your answer. BTW, 144 is not even an option.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Reread the question, the data and the answer choices again please...and I never said it was the answer...as we do not give away answers on this site

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, @MarziaJackson$ we can make this easier by converting to inches right away...as we can see that the data presented was in ft...and we need inches for our answer... So \[\large 6.3ft \times \frac{12inches}{1ft} = 75.6 inches\] \[\large 2.5ft \times \frac{12inches}{1ft} = 30 inches\] So now...the area is simply \(\large 75.6in \times 30in = ?in^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the rectangle is 6.3 feet by 2.5 feet, which means that the area is 15.75 feet^2, like you said... HOWEVER, the answer choices are in inches^2 one square foot is 144 square inches, so how many square inches is 15.75 feet?
