Homework Help: Math

Posted by Dale on Saturday, February 13, 2010 at 9:09pm.

I'm completely confused, please help explain how my teacher got this answer.

How many board feet is the walking surface of my deck? How many boards are installed?

This is the key she gives:
2” x 6” x 16’ long… 24’ / 6” = 24’ / .5’ = 48 boards

Answer: 16 BF/Board x 48 Boards=
768 Board feet required for the walking surface of the deck.

How is she getting this?

Thanks in advance.
