Work Step by Step

Convert the measurements of the room to yards. $20\ ft\times\frac{1\ yd}{3\ ft}=6.67\ yd$ $15\ ft\times\frac{1\ yd}{3\ ft}=5\ yd$ Find the area of the room. $A=bh=(5)(6.67)=33.35\ yd^2$ Since you only have $30\ yd^2$ of carpet and the area of the room is larger than $30\ yd^2$, there is not enough carpet.
