    find the area of the lawn A = 410 x 65 then divide the area by 2500 this will give the number of fertiliser bags needed for the lawn

    I got 10.66 so rouding up would make it... 11? right?

    that's correct, because you can't really purchase 0.666 or 2/3 of a bag, you would have to purchase a whole bag... and then have some left in the shed
