If it takes 6.7 lb of seed to plant one acre of grass how many acres can be planted with 8.04 pounds of seed?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

1.2 acres of grass

Step-by-step explanation:

It takes 6.7 lb of seed to plant one acre of grass. The ratio of interest is 6.7 lb seed:1 acre of grass. We can find the acres of grass that can be planted with 8.04 pounds of seed using a conversion fraction.

8.04 lb × (1 acre/6.7 lb) = 1.2 acre

We can plant 1.2 acres of grass with 8.04 pounds of seed.

Answer 2
Answer: This is a proportion problem. 6.7lbs to one acre as 8.04 lbs is to x acres.

x= # lbs of seed to cover 8.04 acres


6.7/1=8.04/x
cross multiply

(6.7*x) =(1*8.04)
6.7x=8.04
divide both sides by 6.7

x= 1.2 pounds needed to cover 8.04 acres

Hope this helps! :)
