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 ofA = 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 gardenAnswer:if you can buy full bags then i guess $15

Step-by-step explanation:length is 6 width is 2

6×2=12

12/5=2.4

you would need 2 2/5 bags but if you can’t buy less than 1 bag then 3
