2 Answer

  • I'm kinda guessing but I think it's 4.5 square feet because each triangle has 108 inches of area when you multiply by 6 you get 648 then from there you turn that into square feet
  • Answer:

    Total area of six pennant is 16 feet²

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The student is making six right triangular pennants to promote school spirit.

    Each right triangle is 9 inches high and 2 feet long.

    we will convert the height of the triangle from inches to feet.

    12 inches = 1 feet

    9 inches = [tex]\frac{12}{9}=1.33[/tex] feet

    Now we know each triangle is 1.33 feet high and 2 feet long.

    Area of the triangular pennant = 1.33×2 = 2.67 feet²

    Area of 6 pennant = 2.67×6 = 16 feet²

    Therefore, area of six pennant will be 16 feet².
