Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first you'll need to convert the mixed numbers to improper fractions example: 3 1/2 = 3+1/2 3 1/2 = 3*(2/2)+1/2 3 1/2 = 6/2+1/2 3 1/2 = 7/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't you have to convert feet into inches first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, just divide the two numbers without converting notice how the rate is "feet per inch", so you'll have "feet" over "inches"
