A wood floor sells for $55.0 per square yard.

1) What is the price of the wood floor per square meter?

2) How much will it cost to cover an area of 1230 ft2?

 

Data:

1 m = 1.094 yard

1 m = 3.28 ft

1)  $55.01 yard2 x 1.094 yard1 m x 1.094 yard1 m = $ 65.81 m2

 

2) Price (in $) = Price per square meter x area (in m2)

1 m2 = 3.28 x 3.28 ft2 = 10.8 ft2  ⇒ 1230 ft2 = 1230 ft2 x 1 m210.8 ft2 = 114 m2

Price = 65.8 x 114 = $ 7.52 x 103
