Q: Carly is laying carpet in a square foyer with sides of 5.67 ft each. Estimate the amount of carpet she will need for the foyer, using whole numbers.

A: Using whole numbers you would round the length of the sides to 6 ft. Area would be estimated as 6*6 = 36 square feet.

Nancy has a sewing project that calls for panels, which use 1 1/4 yards of fabric each. She has 4 1/2 yards of fabric. She can cut 3 complete panels from the fabric. 4 1/2 ÷ 1 1/4 = 9/2 ÷ 5/4 = 9/2 * 4/5 = 36/10 = 3 3/5
