  2. I would advise drawing a diagram for problems like these, it really helps! Without a diagram though: if the picture is 3.5 feet wide and it is 4 ft to the center of the picture from the ceiling then you want to find the center of the picture first. For that take 3.5/2 and then subtract that number from 4 to find the distance from the top of the picture to the ceiling.
