Sewing patterns recommend buying extra fabric in case of mistakes. Jessica bought 5 yards of fabric, plus 20% extra fabric.
Derek bought 3 yards of fabric, plus 25% extra. Who bought more fabric? How much more?

Hi Lizzie

 

Jessica bought 1.2 * 5 yards

and 

Derek bought  1.25* 3  yards

 

You can simplify those (with a calc if necessary)  and see which is bigger  wink
