A picture must be hung on a wall were the distance from the floor to ceiling is 8 feet. The center of the picture mist be 5 1/4 feet from the floor. Determine the distance from the ceiling to the top of the picture frame
How do I do this solve this? Thanks!
The picture is 24 inches wide and 28 inches high
make a sketch and work in inches
label the centre of the picture as P.
that point must be (8-5 1/4) ft or (96-63) inches or 33 inches from the ceiling.
from P to the top of the painting is 14 inches
so from the top of the painting to the ceiling must be
33 - 14 inches or 19 inches
Hhow'd you get 14 inches though?
Oh, never mond! 28 inches high /2 so you can find the area between ceiling and middle of painting.
