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.

 

 

 

Algebra question.

4 feet  =  48 inches

12 feet = 144 inches

 

On two oppositie sides of the framing we will have   48 / 2 =  24 tiles on each side

On the other two sides of the framing we will have  144 / 2 =  72 tiles on  each side

Plus.....we have 4 tiles on the  corners

 

Total cost =  [ 2 * 24 + 2 * 72  +  4 ]   *  .10  =    $19.60
