I can do the problem in my head but I don't know how to explain it to her or to tell her how to show her work. What is the teacher looking for on how to solve this problem? I've tried to read the chapter over and over again and it doesn't make sense to me whatsoever.

**Damon**, Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 10:59am30 inches = 2.5 ft

25 ft-2.5 ft = 22.5 ft left after space is left for 2.5 ft space at the far wall

Each computer/space unit takes 60 inches or 5 feet.

so

22.5/5 = 4.5 computer/space units

So only four will fit if you leave 30 inches from the wall at each end. If you only have the 30 inch space at one wall, you can get five in.
