Question James was putting the table cloth back on the table after dinner. The table is 25 inches long and 10 inches wide. If the table cloth hangs 5 inches off each side, what is the area of the table cloth?

Answer: 700 square inches =============================================================== Explanation: The dimension 25 bumps up to 25+5+5 = 35 since we add two copies of 5 onto it. This is done to account for the portions that hang off the edge. Similarly, the 10 inch dimension bumps up to 10+5+5 = 20 inches. The table cloth is 35 inches by 20 inches to give an area of 35*20 = 700 square inches. Side note: 700 square inches is approximately equal to 4.861 square feet (divide by 144 to convert from square inches to square feet). Log in to Reply
