    Pond + pond + patio is wrong. Work them out individually and add them up.

    What do I do after?

    Is it 112.2/25

    And then round it to the nearest whole?

    Yes that should give you the minimum amount of boxes you need. After you get the number, think whether you round to the nearest whole, will that number be enough for all the grass as the person wishes?

    It's not enough..
    As he got 4.488

    Therefore he needs 5 boxes. But he doesn't have enough he only has 4boxes

    What do you mean by that last statement when you say he has only 4 boxes? The question asks how many boxes he needs. So your first 2 statements are correct, you can't round down because 4 is not enough therefore he must make do with 5 and keep the leftover fertiliser.

    Doesn't specify anywhere in the question that the restriction is 4, so he can use 5 as that's the minimum needed. Anywho, you get the idea.

    For this one should I find the interior and exterior angles?

    Personally I would find the interior angle, as we are told it is a 10-sided regular polygon (known as a decagon). We can label angle DCX as angle y

    So then we have the same situation as your previous questions, all these 3 angles around C add up to 360 and you know one of them so you can work out y.

    A valid method which I've mentioned above this post, however 144+90 is not 204

    You can extend the line too if you wish and work with that, though I wouldn't bother personally. The interior angle will be made up from the 90 you've drawn on and the other angle. You can find that other angle and take it away from 180 to get the angle you need.
