Ramona is installing a kitchen counter that is 9 feet by 3 feet.
The counter has a hole in it for a sink that is 2 feet by 3 feet.
What is the area of the kitchen counter?

$9\cdot3=27$ is the area of the kitchen counter without the sink, and $2\cdot3=6$ is the area of the sink. so, the area of the kitchen counter is:

$27-6=\boxed{21}$
