If one bag covers 5,000 square feet, divide 26,000 by 5,000 (or simplify it: 26 divided by 5) to get the number of bags...

Then, multiply that number by 40 to get the number of pounds needed.

26,000 divided by 5,000 = 5.2 bags

5.2 bags multiplied by 40 = 208.0 lbs

Your answer is 208.0 lbs are needed
