  1. 1.
    (24 * 47.5) / 12 = ?

    2.
    8 * 12 = 96 inches

    96 / 47.5 = 2.02

    He can get two 47.50-inch lengths out of each 8-foot board. So he needs 12-foot boards.

  2. hello can someone please explain and help me with this problem

  3. this one is easy so you need to:To answer part A, we multiply 24 boards by 47.5 inches to get 1,140 inches, which is 95 feet of boards. To answer part B, we know that an 8-foot board is 96 inches, so we can divide 1,140 by 96 to get 11.875 boards that Corey must buy, but since he can only buy 8-foot boards, he will have to buy a total of 12
