the answer is 12 yards
3 ft = 1 yard
so 18/3 = 6
6 x 2= 12
answer = 12 yards

draw a square with side length of 4. all four angles are 90 degrees and all four sides are 4.
then draw a rectangle with length of 9 and with of 2. all four angles would be 90 degrees, but the proportion of the 2 sides are different when compared to the sides of the square.
the most important part of the problem lies in the fact that the hours have to be converted to minutes before starting to solve the problem.
1 hour = 60 minutes
6 and half hours = (6 * 60) + 30 minutes
= 360 + 30
= 390 minutes
so the payment for 390 minutes is = 78 dollars
the payment for 60 minutes = (78/390) * 60
= 2 * 6 dollars
= 12 dollars
so the rate of pay given is $12 per hour. i hope the procedure is easy enough for you to understand. you can always use this method for solving similar type of problems.
