    Answer:

    He can make 3 birdhouses if he has 12 feet of wood.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Henry uses 3 feet of wood to make 3/4 of a birdhouse.

    If he has 12 feet of wood.

    Now, to find the birdhouses he can make.

    So, to get the number of birdhouses we use unitary method:

    Henry uses 3 feet of wood to make [tex]\frac{3}{4}[/tex] of a birdhouse.

    So, in 1 feet of wood to make = [tex]\frac{\frac{3}{4}}{3}[/tex]  = [tex]\frac{3}{12}[/tex]

    Thus, in 12 feet of wood = [tex]\frac{3}{12} \times 12[/tex]  = [tex]\frac{36}{12}=3.[/tex]

    Therefore, he can make 3 birdhouses if he has 12 feet of wood.
