Two ribbons

The total length of two ribbons is 13 meters. If one ribbon is 7 and 5/8 meters long, what is the length of the other ribbon.

Correct result:

b =  5.375 m

Solution:

a=7+5/8=618=7.625 m s=13 m  a+b=s  b=sa=137.625=438=5.375 ma=7 + 5/8=\dfrac{ 61 }{ 8 }=7.625 \ \text{m} \ \\ s=13 \ \text{m} \ \\ \ \\ a+b=s \ \\ \ \\ b=s-a=13-7.625=\dfrac{ 43 }{ 8 }=5.375 \ \text{m}
