Step-by-step explanation:

A. 191.54 ft²

B. \$2011.17

Step-by-step explanation:

Part A involves multiplying to find the area of the living room using the formula to find the area of a rectangle.

A = b*h (original formula)

A = 15.7*12.2 (substitute values)

A = 191.54 (multiply)

The area of his living room is 191.54 ft²

Next, you need to multiply the number of ft² by the cost per ft² to find the cost to tile the living room

Cost = \$10.50*191.54 (equation)

Cost = \$2011.17 (multiply)

The total cost of tiling the living room would be \$2011.17
