Mrs. Hernanadez is covering the top of a kitchen shelf that is 26 3/8 inches long and 15 1/2 inches wide. She incorrectly measures the length to be 25 inches long. How will this error affect her calculations? (help me understand this ?)

    If you want a cover that is 26 3/8 inches long, but you get a cover that is 25 inches long, what will happen when you put the cover on the shelf ?

    Also, the question asks ** How will this error affect her calculations? ** what calculations do they mean ?

    I would ask your teacher about this question, because those answer choices are wrong and confusing.
