Bobby is hanging a cabinet above the washer and dryer in the laundry room.
The cabinet is 3 1/2 feet wide and 2 feet tall.
If he wants to center the cabinet horizontally on a wall that is 6 1/4 feet wide.
The dimensions in the fraction are given as,
Width = 3 1/2 = 7/2 feet
Wall length = 6 1/4 = 25/4 feet
Then the distance from the edge of the wall of the cabinet will be
⇒ [(25/4) – (7/2)] / 2
⇒ (11/4) x (1/2)
⇒ 11/8
⇒ 1 3/8 feet
The distance from the edge of the wall of the cabinet will be 1 3/8 feet.
