Karly is making a new dance outfit.  She needs 2 ½ yards of fabric for the shawl.  She needs 1 ¾ yards of fabric for the dress.  If she has 3 yards of fabric, how much more does she need.  If each yard of fabric costs $7.98, how much money does Karly need?

Add up the amount of fabric:

\(2 {1 \over2} + 1 {3 \over 4} = 4 {1 \over4}\)

Subtract the total amount from 3:

\(4 {1 \over4} - 3 = 1 {1\over 4}\)

This means that she needs an extra \(1 {1\over 4}\) yards of fabric.

 

To find the total cost, do \(1 {1\over 4} * $7.98 = $9.98\)
