213,500 board feet

Work Step by Step

First, find board feet of lumber contained in a single tree by dividing by the total number of trees. Then, find board feet of lumber in 2500 trees by multiplying the value obtained by 2500. 100 trees -->> 8540 board feet of lumber $\div 100$ 1 Tree -->> $\frac{8540}{100}$ board feet of lumber $\times 2500$ 2500 Trees -->> $\frac{8540}{100}\times 2500$ board feet of lumber Total board feet of lumber expected to harvest=$\frac{8540}{100}\times 2500$ = 213,500
