  1. The countertop is  8.37 square metersStep-by-step explanation:LetL > the length of the countertopW > the width of the countertopwe know

  2. Answer:
    19.83 square meters
    Step-by-step explanation:
    So, if we are finding the area of a rectangular countertop, we need to multiply the length by the width.          A=lw    l=length    w=width
    First, we multiply the length and width of the countertop (13 and 5).
    13×5=65 square feet              65 is the area of thecountertop in feet.
    Next, we have to multiply that by 0.305 to convert it into meters.
    65*0.305=19.825 square meters       If we round it, its 19.83 square meters.
