1. The number of bags that she needs to use for each square yard is 0.625 i.e. [tex]5 div 8[/tex].

Given that,

• It has 5 bags of mulch to cover 12 yds of edible flower beds.
• We need to find the no of bags.

Based on the above information, the calculation is as follows:n

[tex]= 7.5 div 12[/tex]

= 0.625

= [tex]5 div 8[/tex]

Therefore we can conclude that the number of bags that she needs to use for each square yard is 0.625 i.e. [tex]5 div 8[/tex].

2. To determine the number of bags needed per square yard, you will take the total number of bags and divide them between the 12 square yards to get the number per square yard.

7.5 divided by 12 = 0.625

0.625 is equal to 5/8 bag,

She will need 5/8 bag for each square yard.
