A hollow steel tube, 4 m long, has walls 5 mm thick and is open at each end. if the outer diameter is 41 cm, what's the inner diameter?

• math -

first convert 5 mm to cm
recall that 10 mm = 1 cm
thus 5 mm = 1/2 cm = 0.5 cm
then we subtract the thickness by the outer diameter:
41 - 2*0.5
41 - 1 = 40 cm

hope this helps~ :)
