Bushels of Corn per Acre

 

Chris Carpenter of CPS explained two yield formulas to Mrs. Argabright's 2nd hour Advanced Algebra class.  One was based on weight.  The other was based on kernels of corn per ear that local farmers use every harvest.  The students were to take the formula Mr. Carpenter showed them and rewrite it to use the technique learned in Advanced Algebra.  The students are studying rates, and Mrs. Argabright gave them real problems that she had been asked, over the years, to figure.  The students calculated that an 8-man football field (goal line to goal line) is 0.6 of an acre.  An 11-man football field from goal to opposing 10-yard line is an acre.
