If a fence costs 8.75 for a yard (36 inches) I think) and you only have 22 inches how much will the fence be?

This is a simple problem.

set up a ratio:

                         8.75 : 36

                         x : 22

36/22=18/11

18/11 *22= 36.

The answer is: 36laugh

You only have a fraction of the fence....you only have 22 out of 36 inches   or  22/36

  so you would pay   22/36  x  8.75 =

In other words,

the cost of 1 inch is = 8.75/36 

gives some value, multiply it by 22 inches and that is the answer :)
