The question is:

Kelly wants to center the rug in her living room.

The rug is 8 3/4 feet wide. The total width of her

Living room is 12 1/2 feet. How far from each

Wall of her living room should she place her rug?

I did 12 1/2 divided by 8 3/4

So 12 2/4 divided by 8 3/4

50/4 divided by 35/4

1 3/7

So the rug should be 1 3/7 away from each wall

Is this correct ? If not can you please explain

Thank you
