15. What will it cost to tile a kitchen floor that is 12 feet wide by 20 feet long if the tile cost $8.91 per square yard?
First, we notice that the dimensions of the kitchen are given in feet, while the price of the tile is given in square yards. Because of this, we must first convert the floor dimensions to yards (3 feet = 1 yd.), so the kitchen is 4 yards wide by 6 2/3 yards long. To find the area of the floor, we have to multiple the length by the width (A = lw), which is 26 2/3 square yards. Finally, multiply the cost of the tile per square yard by the area of the floor ($8.91 x 26 2/3) to find the total cost, which is $237.60

When creating an academic essay, why is it important to remove all passive verbs from the work's content?
Passive verbs (be, am, is, etc.) distract from the meaning and goal of the essay. Using more descriptive action verbs help portray the essay's idea more fluently and persuasively.
