How much string will remain after Brittany cuts the 4 pieces of string?

I'll assume it's supposed to be 'one foot' Four pieces of string one foot each is four feet. Subtract that from the starting length of string. |dw:1333127634921:dw| :]

Is it a fraction of a foot then? It's missing the value of each piece of string.

Okay so first what you want to do is find out how much total string she used, so you multiply 4/1 by 4/4, just straight across which is 16/5 And then you want to convert 15.2 to a fraction which is 76/5 And then you subtract 16/5 (total pieces of string used) from 76/5 (starting amount of string) and you get 60/5 which is 12. :] |dw:1333128420831:dw|
