c) Now calculate the total area of all walls. Assume that there is just one door and one window in the shed. Make sure to subtract the area of a window and area of the door.[4 marks]
3. To determine material needed to complete the job.
a) Use the total area to determine the number of sheets of plywood needed to build the shed, i.e. sides and a roof. Include 10% plywood to account for cutting waste. Each sheet of plywood is 1.2 m by 2.4 m. Watch the following video to help you calculate % of a whole number. [4 marks]
