# The Seed Market

 Using the information in Table 1 calculate how much it will cost to plant your acres of corn, soybean, and wheat.

The table gives the amount of seed in each bag and how many acres each bag will plant. For example, if you are planning to plant 100 acres with soybeans and you know that a 60 lb. bag of soybean seed will plant one acre, you will multiply 100 acres by the cost of the bag, \$15.49, to find the total cost of planting your soybeans. Total the cost for all your seed for these three crops.

 Crop Price per bag Size of bag Number of acres each bag will plant Corn \$89.90 80,000 kernels 3 Soybeans \$15.49 60 lbs. 1 Wheat \$11.25 60 lbs. 2/3
