**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, October 28, 2007 at 9:35pmEach piece of 10-foot-long lumber has 120 inches (12*10).

You need to figure how many times 45 goes into 120 to find the number of shelves Nate can get from each 10-foot long piece.

If you post your answer and the number of 10-foot boards Nate will use, we'll be glad to check it.

**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, October 28, 2007 at 9:50pmRight. He can get 2 shelves out of each 10-foot board.

Since he needs 7 shelves, how many pieces of lumber does he need?
