Mowing: Estimation 180 Problem

How many trips does it take to mow this lawn?

It is half a city block which measures 330′ x 165′.  My mower deck is 48″.

165′ x 12″ = 1,980″

1,980″ / 48″ = 41.25

It takes just over 41 mower decks to cut lawn.  Depending on the student, a trip will include either a full circuit or loop which will take two 48″ cuts.

So, 41.25 / 2 = 20.6

So it takes 20 full trips and a half of another to cut the lawn.
