Rosita buys 300 feet of yarn for a craft project. If the yarn costs 12 cents a yard, how much does Rosita spend?

\(\$12.00\)

Explanation

Since the cost of the yarn is given in yards, first convert the length of yarn Rosita bought into yards. Since 3 feet = 1 yard, 300 feet = 300/3 = 100 yards. \(\text { Rosita spent } \$ 100 \times 12 \text { cents }=1200 \text { cents }=\$ 12.00\)
