# Tameeka is in charge of designing a pennant for spirit week. She wants the base to be 3 and one half feet and the height to be 6 and one half. She has 20 square feet of paper available. Does she have enough paper? explain.

Hello! You need to calculate the surface of the pennant. It is a rectangle, so you can use this formula : $A = w\times h$ (w : width ; h : height). $A = 3.5 \times 6.5 = 22.75 \text{ square feet}$ 22.75 > 20 Tameeka doesn't have enough paper.
