Maths Problem

Marilyn needs to fertilise her front lawn. It measures 20 metres by 35 metres. Each bag of the fertiliser that she plans to use covers approximately 200m2. How many bags should she buy?3 1/2
Remember: length X width
20 x 30=600
20 x 5=100
600 + 100=700

700 ÷ 2=350 Today i solved this word problem using place value pationing which is a stage six strategy.
My next goal is to solve my problems using rounding and compensating.
