Pitch Areas

Grimsby Town manager Harry Haddock is buying a huge blanket to cover the pitch in the winter.

Help him work out how much material is needed. You may use a calculator! There's one here

1. Area of pitch =

2. He finds out that the blankets are sold in three sizes - 5,000msq, 3,000 m² and 1,000 m². Which one does he need to buy? =              m²

3. He decides they cost too much - so just covers the penalty areas instead. The penalty areas are both 30 metres long and 20m wide. How much cloth will be needed to cover both of them?

4. With some of the money saved Harry decides to carpet the floor in the gym.



How many metres² of carpet is needed?
