Mr. and Mrs. leeds are shopping for carpet for their living room and dining room. Their living room is 21 feet by 15 feet and their dining room is 12 feet by 9 feet. They have looked at two different priced carpets. One for 14.95 a square yard installed and another for 19.99 a square yard installed. How much would they save by choosing the cheaper carpet? What are some other things besides money that they should consider before making their choice? After you find out how much carpet they need, figure out the savings in one calculation. Explain.
total square is 423 feet^2. So they save 423*(19.99-14.95)/9=236.88 $ size of the carpets, that are in the shop.
