    Answer:

    Writing area of poster in fraction 1  1/8 square yards.

    Writing area of poster in decimal form is 1.125 square yards.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    length of poster = 1 1/2- yards

    length of poster in normal fraction (a/b form) is (1*2 + 1)/2 yards = 3/2 yards

    Width of poster = 3/4- yards.

    • Writing area for the poster will be whole area of rectangular poster.
    • Area of rectangle is given by length * width

    Since, only length and width of poster is given it can be safely concluded  that poster is rectangular in shape.

    Therefore,

    Area of poster = length of poster * width of poster

                             = 3/2 * 3/4 square yards = 9/8 square yards

    • In mixed fraction form 9/8 square yards is 1  1/8 square yards.
    • In decimal form area of poster is 1.125 square yards.

    Poster given in the problem gives Dante and his two classmates 1  1/8 square yards writing area.
