**bobpursley**, Thursday, December 11, 2008 at 6:59pmHow many half inches are in 2.8 inches? that is how many 4 feet are in the room.

Feet in Room=4* 2.8/.5

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, December 11, 2008 at 7:01pmSet up a proportion.

0.5 / 4 = 2.8 / x

Cross multiply.

0.5x = 4 * 2.8

0.5x = 11.2

x = 22.4
