Answer

The cost of the trim is $26.03.

Work Step by Step

Multiply to find the total amount of braid needed. $120cm\times5=600cm$ Move the decimal 2 places to the left to convert cm to m. $600cm=6m$ Use unit fractions to convert m to yd. $6m\times{1.09yd}{1m}=6.54yd$ Multiply by the cost per yard to find the total cost. $6.54yd\times\frac{3.98}{yd}=26.0292$
