Solution

Since 1.6 yards of fabric are required for each curtain, it follows that (3)(1.6), or 4.8, yards of fabric are required to make the 3 curtains. The fabric can be purchased only by the full yard, so 5 yards of fabric would need to be purchased. Since the fabric sells for $8.00 per yard, the total cost of the fabric is $40.00.

The correct answer is \(A.\)

The total length of 3 curtains is 3 x 1.6 = 4.8 yards, so 5 yards will be needed, and 5 yards of fabric cost 5 x 8 = 40 dollars.

Answer: A
