The mural of your school mascot is 4 feet by 12 feet and is to be completely framed using a single row of square tiles each 2  inches on an edge. If the tiles are 0.10 each, find the cost, in dollars, of the tiles needed to frame the mural.

The school mascot is rectangular in nature.

Perimeter P = 2(L+W)

L is the length = 4feet

W is the width = 12 feet

Perimeter = 2(4+12)

Perimeter = 2(16)

Perimeter  = 32 feet

Convert to inches

12 in = 1feet

x = 32 feet

Cross multiply

x = 12 * 32

x = 384in

Hence the perimeter of the school mascot is 384 in

If it is to be completely framed using a single row of square tiles each 2 inches on an edge

2 inches = 1 tiles

384 inches = y tiles

Cross multiply

2y = 384

y = 384/2

y = 192 tiles

The number of tiles needed is 192 tiles

Get the cost of 192tiles

If the tiles are $010 each. 192 tiles will cost 192 * 0.1 = $19.2

Hence the cost of the tiles needed is $19.2
