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
Thanks!

make a sketch and work in inches
label the centre of the picture as P.
that point must be (85 1/4) ft or (9663) 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 
hate it

Hhow'd you get 14 inches though?

Ughh....

Oh, never mond! 28 inches high /2 so you can find the area between ceiling and middle of painting.
