(a) $56.5~ft$ (b) 10 strips (c) $155.40 #### Work Step by Step (a) We can find the circumference:$C = \pi~d = (\pi)(18~ft) = 56.5~ft$(b) We can find the required number of strips:$\frac{56.5~ft}{6~ft} = 9.4$Since the strips are sold in lengths of 6 feet, we need to buy 10 strips. (c) We can find the cost:$cost = (\$2.59/ft)(10)(6~ft) = \$155.40\$
