**Jay**, Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at 6:44pmsmall addition:

the equation used is:

distance/(number of things dividing -1)

this works because you have one light at the beginning and one at the end. So you end up with(number of things dividing -1)for the number of parts.

ex: 1 foot with 3 lights, that are equal distance, mean they will be placed .5 , half, a foot away from the nearest light

the second equation is:

(starting position - end position)* distance in each part

Note: the answer will always be positive
