**drwls**, Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 1:59amYou are going to have to find a common denominator for the fraction parts of those numbers before adding them.

The common denominator is 27x7 = 189

26/27 = 182/189

5/7 = 135/189

5/9 = 105/189

Sum of fractions 422/189 = 2 44/189

Add to that the sum of the integers 1,8 and 12 (=21). The answer is

23 44/189 yards

That is the exact answer. It is easier to do in decimal form and just round off. That would give you 23.2328...
