A PIECE OF METAL3/7/8 INCHES LONG IS TO BE CUT FROM A LONG PIECE OF 5/1/16 INCHES. WHAT WILL BE THE LENGTH OF THE REMAINING PIECE?

  • MATH -

    The question is
    "subtract 3 7/8 from 5 1/16"
    Since 1/16 is less than 7/8=14/16, we need to borrow, so we will do

    4 17/16" - 3 14/16"
    =(4-3) (17-14)/16
    = 1 3/16"
