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 =  3/20 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

a=753=7+53=57 5+3=535+3=538=7.6 cm b=7103=7+103=107 10+3=1070+3=1073=7.3 cm  x=(ab)/2=(5381073)/2=203 cm=0.15 cm
