1. Corey needs 24 boards that are 47.5 inches How many feet of board should he buy and then explain.
2. If you can only buy 8 foot boards, how many should he buy? and then explain.

1.
(24 * 47.5) / 12 = ?
2.
8 * 12 = 96 inches
96 / 47.5 = 2.02
He can get two 47.50inch lengths out of each 8foot board. So he needs 12foot boards.
