1. 7_3/8 = original board size

The orginal board is cut to 3/4 of its original size.

The word [of] means multiply.

Therefore, 7_3/8 x 3/4 = ???

3. Yes.

Why?

Original board = 7_3/8 inches, right?

You cut 3/4 of its size (its size is 7_3/8 inches).

The board is now 177/32 inches or as a mixed number 5_17/32 inches, which is 3/4 smaller than 7_3/8 inches (the original size of the board).

Got it?
