A pipe is 2" outside diameter and it has 3/16" walls .What is the inside diameter,?

math - Ms. Sue, Sunday, June 24, 2012 at 3:50pm

2 - 2(3/16)

2 - 6/16 = 1 10/16 = 1 5/8

**I multiplied 3/16 by 2.
**

2 * (3/16) = 6/16

I subtracted the walls from the outside diameter.

2 - 6/16 = 1 10/16

Then I simplified that fraction.

10/16 = 5/8

This site may help you visualize that.
