Question

Sydney has 7 feet of material to make bookmarks. She will use 6 inches of material for each bookmark How many bookmarks can Sydney make? O2 bookmarks O 6 bookmarks O15 bookmarks O 45 bookmarks

Answer

Sydney can make 15 bookmarks. Step-by-step explanation: Assuming that you intended to indicate 7 1/2 feet, as 7 feet in this case would render all possible answers incorrect, we should first note that 1 foot is equivalent to 12 inches. Therefore, by multiplying 7.5 by 12, we can determine that we have 90 inches of material available. By dividing this figure by the required 6 inches per bookmark, we can conclude that Sydney will be able to produce a total of 15 bookmarks. (I sincerely hope that this is not some kind of trick question, and I must admit that I would be somewhat upset if it were [although I am, of course, only joking].)
