1. The expression that represents the yards of fabric needed in terms of the length of the window L is L = 12x.
According to the statement
we have to find the expression which is required for the length of the window.
So, For this purpose, we know that the
A linear equation is an algebraic equation of the form y=mx+b. involving only a constant and a first-order (linear) term, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
From the information:
The yards of fabric needed to make curtains is 3 times the length of a window in inches, divided by 36.
Let the length of the window be L. And the yards of the fabric be a X.
So,
Then the equation become:
x = 3L/36
36x  =3L
L = 12x.
So, The expression that represents the yards of fabric needed in terms of the length of the window L is L = 12x.
