    Answer:

    the tv would actually be too big for the wall, or cover all of that wall and then some.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    so the formula for this is going to be lxw

    notice the units are different. this is an easy fix. either divide the inches by 12 or multiply the ft by 12. (12 inches in a foot)

    tv=  31in x 57in= 1,767 in2

    wall=  8ftx9ft= 72 ft2

    if the wall is 72ft2, then it would be 864in2

    (72in2 x 12= 864in2)

    if the tv is 1,767 in2 and the wall is  864in2 ; the tv would actually be too big for the wall; or cover all of that wall and then some.
