# Application problem

posted by .

A wheelbarrow maker uses handles made of hardwood. Find the amount of hardwood necessary to make 182 handles. The handle length is 61 1/2 inches.

• Application problem -

182 *http://www.jiskha.com/ 61.5 = 11193 inches = 932 feet

• Application problem -

Wait, why did you put a link in between 182 times and divided by 61.5?

• Application problem -

182*61.5 = ??
