    Answer:

    No, Tyesha doesn’t have enough wood for her project.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the length of woods she has be a, b, and c respectively.

    Given the following data;

    Length of wood required = 17¾ ft.

    Length, a = 7½ ft.

    Length, b = 5.25 = 5¼ ft.

    Length, c = 6¾ ft.

    To determine if she has enough wood;

    Length of wood required should be equal to the length of wood available.

    Therefore, we would sum up all the length of woods she has.

    Total length = a + b + c

    Substituting into the equation, we have;

    Total length = 7½ + 5¼ + 6¾

    We would add the whole numbers together.

    Total length = (7 + 5 + 6) + (½ + ¼ + ¾)

    Note: ¼ + ¾ = 4/4 = 1

    Total length = 18 + (½ + 1)

    Total length = 18 + ½ + 1

    Total length = 19½ ft

    19½ ≠ 17¾

    Therefore, the length of wood Tyesha has isn’t equal to the length of wood required.
