3'4" + 2"10" + 6'8" = 11'22" = 12'10"

16" = 15'12", so the amount left is

15'12" - 12'10" = 3'2"

1 ft = 12 in

2 ft = 24 in

6 ft = 72 in

16 ft = 192 in

3 ft + 4 in + 2 ft + 10 in + 6 ft 8 in =

36 + 4 + 24 + 10 + 72 + 8 = 154 in

16 ft - 154 in = 192 in - 154 in =

38 in =

36 in + 2 in =

3 ft 2 in
