    Answer:

    See Explanation

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    Base Dimension

    Length = 4\frac{1}{4}yd

    Width = 1\frac{2}{3}yd

    Required

    The base area of all containers

    First, calculate the base area of 1 container.

    This is calculated as:

    Area = Length * Width

    Area = 4\frac{1}{4}yd * 1\frac{2}{3}yd

    Express as improper fraction

    Area = \frac{17}{4}yd * \frac{5}{3}yd

    So, we have:

    Area = \frac{17*5}{4*3}yd^2

    Area = \frac{85}{12}yd^2

    The number of containers is not given. So, I will use ‘n’ as the number of containers.

    So, we have:

    Total = n * Area

    Total= n * \frac{85}{12}yd^2

    ——————————————————————————————–

    Assume n is 3 (i.e. 3 containers)

    The total area is:

    Total= 3 * \frac{85}{12}yd^2

    Total= \frac{85}{4}yd^2

    Total= 21\frac{1}{4}yd^2

    ——————————————————————————————–
