How many squares for 6 people who want 6 quilts of 6x6 squares?

I was so confused at first, I didn’t read it correctly until I read your comment. They are asking for 6 quilts EACH! I had overlooked that part and thought all 6 customers wanted 1 quilt a piece, thank you!

Hello folks,

Isn’t clear for me… sorry.

If one quilt there are 36 square, so 6 quilt has (36+36+36+36+36+36) = 216 square.

Why (6**4)?

Where I’m confused?

Tks.

Hello @henriquebuosilopes61, welcome to the forums! The reason it is 6**4 is that there are six people, each wants six quilts, and each quilts has thirty-six squares:

6//people
6 * 6//6 quilts per person
6 * 6 * 6 * 6//each quilt has 36 squares, or 6 * 6

6 * 6 * 6 * 6 is the same thing as 6**4.
I hope this helps!

Thanks for the clear explanation!

This is really helpful. I couldn’t see where the 4 came from until you helped. Now it’s obvious.
