(MATH PROBLEM) Backyard Project?


The following diagram shows an overhead view of your backyard. You wish to cover two-fifths of the area not including the BBQ or pool in order to build a patio, Bricks cost $0.75 each, and each brick covers 1/4 square foot. You also wish to put up a picket fence around the area of the backyard that does not face your house. Fencing materials are $11.35 per linear foot.
Update: If you wish to purchase all of the materials at Home Depot, and sales tax is 8%, how much will the entire project cost?
