Textbook pg.79, #15


     15. Kai needs to replace the strip of laminate that is glued to the vertical faces on a square tabletop. The tabletop has an area of 1.69m². What length does she need?


                Explanation:    We are squaring the area of the tabletop because we are trying to find which factors are equivalents to 1.69m² and those factors are the side length of the tabletop.

                ANSWER:  Kai needs 1.3m laminate.
