E. \$12.80

Given, the length of fabric required for each curtain is 1.6 yards.
So, the length of fabric required to make 3 curtains is 3*1.6=4.8 yards
Since the fabric needed can be purchased only by the full yard, so 5 yards would be purchased. (4.8 is approximated to 5; the nearest full length)

Total cost of fabric for the 3 curtains= 5*8=\$40

Ans. (A)

C. \$24.00
D. \$16.00
E. \$12.80

NOTE :

1. Fabric can be purchased only by full yard.

2. per yard is 0.8 \$

3. We need fabric for 3 curtains

4. For each curtain we need 1.6 yards.

Total amount of yard = 1.6*3 = 4.8

But as per the rule 1 we have to buy full yard. So, we have to buy 5 yards.

Total cost = 5*8 = 40.

The total length of 3 curtains is 3 x 1.6 = 4.8 yards, so 5 yards will be needed, and 5 yards of fabric cost 5 x 8 = 40 dollars.

Curtains = 3 nos

Length required for each curtain = 1.6 yards

So, for 3 curtains = 1.6 * 3 = 4.8 yards

Unit rate = \$ 8.00 per yard

As we have to buy a complete length of 1 meter, we need 5 meters of fabric.

Therefore, cost = 5 * 8 = \$ 40

A.
