**Step-by-step explanation:**

1. A room is 8 2/3 m by 5 1/4 m. What is the area of the room?

[tex]8\frac{2}{3} *5\frac{1}{4}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{26}{3} *\frac{21}{4}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{13}{1} *\frac{7}{2}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{91}{2}[/tex]

2. A group of volunteers packed 198 bags of rice. Each bag contained 3 1/4 kilo of rice. How many kilograms of rice did the volunteers pack?

[tex]198*3\frac{1}{4} \\\\198*\frac{13}{4} = \frac{297}{2} =148.5[/tex]

3. Aling Luz bought 3/8 yards of linen cloth which cost Php 72.00 per yard. She gave Php 1,000.00 to the cashier. How much change will she receive?

[tex]\frac{3}{8} *72=27[/tex]

27 pesos

1000 – 27 = 973
