\$41.16

Step-by-step explanation:

Length of bricks required = 35 feet, length of brick sold = 10 inches, cost of 10 inches brick = \$0.98 per brick

Total number of brick required to build the back yard = Length of bricks required ÷ Length of brick sold

1 ft = 12 inches

Number of brick required = (35 * 12) ÷ 10

Number of bricks required = 42 bricks

Cost of brick required = Per length cost of brick * Number of bricks required

Cost of brick required = 0.98 * 42

Cost of brick required = \$41.16

Ms. Fontanges would spend \$41.16 on the purchase of bricks
