the costume designer for the school play uses 4 feet of fabric to make 8 costumes.

at the same rate, how many costumes can the designer make with 3 yards of fabric?

Answer

Well the first thing you need to know is that there are 3 feet in 1 yard.
Therefore 3 yards is equal to 9 feet of fabric.
The next thing you need to know is how many costumes she can make with 1 foot of fabric which is just 8 divided by 4 so your answer is 2.
Then you just multiply 9 and 2 to get 18 costumes.
Therefore the designer can make 18 costumes with 3 yards of fabric if she goes at the same rate.
