A hollow steel tube, 4 m long, has walls 5 mm thick and is open at each end. if the outer diameter is 41 cm, what's the inner diameter?

first convert 5 mm to cm

recall that 10 mm = 1 cm

thus 5 mm = 1/2 cm = 0.5 cm

then we subtract the thickness by the outer diameter:

41 - 2*0.5

41 - 1 = 40 cm

hope this helps~ :)
