Answer:Area of carpet = 177.625 ft²

Step-by-step explanation:Given:Length of room = = 14.5 ft

Width of room = = 12.25 ft

Find:Area of carpet

Computation:

Area of carpet = lb

Area of carpet = (14.5)(12.25)

Area of carpet = 177.625 ft²Micheal estimation = 15.5 x 12.25 = 189.875

Tracy estimation = 12.25 x 15.5 = 189.875

Both wrong.
