    Answer:

    0.16 bags

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that:

    the floor of the rabbit’s cage is 4 feet long and one bag of shaving covers 5² ft.

    the floor of the rabbit’s cage which is 4ft = 25 ft for one bag of wood shaving

    to determine the amount of wood shaving Harper needs to buy  to cover 4 feet of her rabbit’s cage ; we have:

    x bags = 4 feet

    1 bag = 25 feet

    25*x = 4*1 \\ \\ x = \frac{4*1}{25}

    x = 0.16 bags of wood shaving is needed to cover the floor of of the rabbit’s cage that measures 4 feet long.
