Wood 11

Father has 12 1/5 meters long wood. Then I cut the wood into two pieces. One part is 7 3/5 meters long. Calculate the length of the other wood?

Result

b =  4.6 m

Solution:

f=12+15=615=12.2 m a=7+35=385=7.6 m  b=fa=12.27.6=235=4.6 mf=12 + \dfrac{ 1 }{ 5 }=\dfrac{ 61 }{ 5 }=12.2 \ \text{m} \ \\ a=7 + \dfrac{ 3 }{ 5 }=\dfrac{ 38 }{ 5 }=7.6 \ \text{m} \ \\ \ \\ b=f-a=12.2-7.6=\dfrac{ 23 }{ 5 }=4.6 \ \text{m}
