For 130,000 to be 95% of the crop 136,842 seeds must be planted (130,000 / 0.95)

That is 56.6 pounds of seed (136,842 / 2296)

For 50 acres he needs 2,980 pounds of seed.

Thant is 59.6 bags. So 60 bags.

The cost is $4,800.

Thank you very much! I realize that I did not take into account the 95%, so that's why I could not get the correct answer. Thanks again!01/25/21
