Kabir: Well, the area of the lawn is 635 sq. metres and each bag of grass seed can be used for 25 sq. metres how many bags will you buy?
Sidh: 25
Kabir: think Sidh think. how many square metres will 25 bags cover
Sidh: 25 times 25 which is 625 sq. metres
Kabir:Then won't you need more than 25 bags?
Sidh: Well I do not want to buy more bags because they will get wasted
