Answer:Total area of the flag is9.375 feet in decimal form.Total area of the flag is75/8 feet in fraction formTotal area of the flag is9 3/8 feet in mixed fraction formStep-by-step explanation:No of panel’s of Fabric = 3

Length of each panel = 2 1/2 feet

converting mixed fraction into normal fraction 2 1/2 = (2*2 + 1)/2 = 5/2

Length of each panel = 5/2 feet

__________________________________________

Width of each panel = 1 1/4 feet

converting mixed fraction into normal fraction 1 1/4 = (1*4 + 1)/4 = 5/4

Width of each panel = 5/4 feet .\

area of rectangle is given by length * widthsince panel is rectangularArea of one panel = Length of each panel * Width of each panelsubstituting value of length and width we haveArea of one panel = 5/2 * 5/4 = 25/8 square feet.Area of 3 panel = 3 * 25/8 square feet = 75/8 feet = 9.375 feetArea of 3 panel in mixed fraction = 9 3/8 feet.//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Total area of the flag is9.375 feet
