Frame image

Peter wants to put a picture in a frame. The picture is 7 3/5 cm wide. To fit in the picture frame cannot be more than 7 3/10 cm wide. How much should the image be trimmed?

Correct answer:

x =  0.15 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

a=735=7+35=7 5+35=385=7.6 cm b=7310=7+310=7 10+310=7310=7.3 cm  x=(ab)/2=(7.67.3)/2=320 cm=0.15 cm
