    Answer:

      $15

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Assuming the grid scale is 1 foot per unit, the garden is 2 ft wide by 6 ft long, for a total area of

      A = LW = (6 ft)(2 ft) = 12 ft²

    At 5 ft² per bag, the number of bags of mulch required is …

      (12 ft²)/(5 ft²/bag) = 2.4 bags

    We assume the gardener can only purchase whole bags, so must purchase 3 bags in order to have enough mulch to fill the garden. That cost is …

      (3 bags)×($5/bag) = $15 . . . . cost of mulch to fill the garden
