    Answer:
    27 feet
    Step-by-step explanation:
    We can find this answer by taking the initial amount like shown following steps:
    First we take the total amount and divide it by 8 to know how much 1/8 is (9)
    Second, we multiply that number that we got (9) by 5 since he has already done 5/8 of the fence (45)
    Lastly, we know that he has already done 45 ft of the 72 total ft so we subtract 45 from 72 which gets us:
    27 ft

    Answer:
    27 ft
    Step-by-step explanation:
    So this probably isn’t the way that a lot of people would solve this problem but what I do is I first find 1/8 of 72 so 72x(1/8) or 72/8, which is 9. Then, find 5/8 of 72 so 9×5=45. Finally, subtract 45 from 72 and you get 27ft.
