The cost for the carpet for the room is:

10/3 x 12/3 x 12.51

10/3 x 4 x 12.51 = $166.80

Alternative solution:

Since 1 yd^2 = 9 ft^2, the carpet costs 12.51/9 = $1.39 per square foot. Thus the cost of the carpet for the room is:

10 x 12 x 1.39 = $166.80

Answer: A

Area = 10/3 * 12/3

Cost = 40/3 * 12.51 = $166.80
