I came up with yes, you will use 11 1/8th amount and have a section of 1 and 1/8th left. Is this correct?

**lynnette**, Wednesday, May 26, 2010 at 7:39pmnot exactly. yes, the plumber will have enough, but I came up with 11 1/2 ft

2 7/8 * 4 = 23/8 * 4 = 23/2 = 11 R1 or rather 1/2 (remainder)

Hope that helped!
