Question

Farah bought some cloth to make 3 identical pillow covers and 3 cushion covers. Each pillow cover was made with 1 whole and 3 /8m of cloth and each cushion cover was made with 3/4m of cloth. One metre of cloth cost $8. How much did Farah pay for the cloth?
How to do?
Tks

Answer

1 + 3/8 = 11/8

Total length for pillow covers: 11/8 × 3 = 33/8 m

Total length for cushion covers: 3/4 × 3 = 9/4 m

33/8 + 9/4 = 33/8 + 18/8

= 51/8 m (total length for the covers)

51/8 × 8 = $51//
