The area of the warehouse floor is 1925yd²

The volume of the boxes is 4812.5yd³

Step-by-step explanation:

First we have to calculate the area, for this we must multiply the length by the width

a = area

l = long = 55yd

w = width = 35yd

a = l * w

a = 55yd * 35yd

a = 1925yd²

to calculate the volume we have to multiply the area by the height

asks us for the volume for half the height so we have to divide the height by 2

a = area = 1925yd²

h = height = 5yd/2 = 2.5yd

v = volume

v = a * h

v = 1925yd² * 2.5yd

v = 4812.5yd³

The area of the warehouse floor is 1925yd²

The volume of the boxes is 4812.5yd³
