I'm coming up with 1418.40. Math isn't my strong point, but this seems strait forward.

(24x18)/3 x 9.85?

I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

There are 9 square feet in a square yard, not 3. So divide by 9 instead of 3 and you have your answer.

If a carpet costs \$9.85 a square yard to find the cost to carpet a room that is 24 feet long and 18 feet wide you need to do these calculations. Find out how many square yards 24 by 18 feet makes by multiplication. Finally, multiply the result with \$9.85 to find the total cost of \$4255.20.

You have 48 square yards multiply that by 9.85. Also, does that include pad? Is it a gluedown? is that instalation price? Taxes?

You might want to compare carpet prices. \$10 sq yd prices seems kind of low. Dont forget padding and installation costs.

As to answer your question. 1400 sound about right. Doing this in my head. Are you including installation of just getting a really good deal. Oh yeah also padding cost is that included.
