288 pots

Work Step by Step

Convert the table measurements to inches. $W=4ft\times \frac{12in}{1 ft}=48 in$ $L=8ft\times \frac{12in}{1 ft}=96 in$ Divide by 4 inches to determine how many pots can fit on the table. $48 in \div 4 \frac{in}{pot}=12 pots$ $96 in \div 4 \frac{in}{pot}=24 pots$ 12 rows of 24 pots can be placed on the table. Multiply to find the total number of pots. $12\times24=288\ pots$
