From A student: A table has the measurements of 1.6m by 2m, how much material is needed to cover table? I converted to cm then multiplied but got an answer of 32000cm ,so I divide by 100 to get to metres - the answer was 320 which I know is wrong - please explain!!
Also I need to explain in my own words what an 'average' is and I am struggling.
