9 inches

The 13 foot piece is the shortest.

I think 9 and 3... no, its 5 and 7.

6/8 = 0.75 ft or 0.75*12 = 9 inches.

There is no way to do this with two pieces. You can do it with 4 (making each 3 by 2) The only way is by having three pieces.... note: The total area is the same so it has to be possible (24sf) 2 cuts total (3 pieces): STEPS>>> 1st: Cut the board into two pieces. Making one piece 8'x2 the other piece then is 8'x1'. 2nd: Cut the 8'x1' piece into half making two 4'x1' pieces. 3rd: Place the two 4'x1' pieces together to make it 4'x2'. 4th: Place the 8'x2' & new 4'x2' pieces together for your desired dimension, 12'x2'

9 pieces: 6 yards = 18 feet, then divide by 2 feet per piece to get 9 pieces.

12 foot in 3 peicies in which two are of same lenght say as x and x and the third one is twice of other i.e. 2x thenx+x+2x = 124x=12x=3so two are of 3 foot each and one is of 6 feet long3,3,6

4 pieces: x, x + 2, x + 4 and x + 6, total 4x + 12 which equals 152 so 4x = 140 making x = 35 feet. Check: 35 + 37 + 39 + 41 = 152? yes.

Horses' hooves are actually the third phalanx of the third digit - this is analogous to humans running on just the middle finger of each hand and the third toe of each foot.

1 piece = 2 foot x 5 foot = 10 square feet 33 pieces x 10 square feet = 330 square feet 330 square feet x 0.30 = 99.00

It is 80 you stupid===============================Another contributor observed:The first answer to this question comes from a contributor who is not onlyoffensive in his attitude, but wrong in his math as well.The question doesn't say "5 square foot pieces". It says "5 foot square pieces".From that terminology, we understand that each piece is a square, with 5-foot sidesand an area of 25 square feet.It takes (400/25) = 16 of these pieces to cover an area of 400 square feet.

Although koalas have five digits on each of its four paws, they do not have five claws on each foot or hand. Each hand, or front foot, has five claws. However, there is no claw on the big toe of the hind foot. The second and third toes are fused together, but retain both claws, meaning that they have four claws on each hind foot.

Suppose the shorter piece is x feet long. Then the longer piece is x+1 feet long. The total length of the two pieces is x + (x+1) = 2x+1 feet. So 2x+1 = 9 so 2x = 8 so x = 4' and then the other piece is 5'

Convert 10 feet into inches. There are 12 inches in a foot. So 10 feet would equal 120 inches. (10 x 12=120) Then divide 15 into 120. Remember the position of the decimal.

If you let x equal the short piece then 3x would be the long piece. x + 3x = 24 4x = 24 x = 6 3x = 18 So, the shorter piece would be 6 ft. and the longer piece would be 18 ft.

If he went to Home Depot; he could buy a brand new piece of lumber and cut that. However, he will need to get a piece of lumber measuring 5 feet 1/4 inch in lnegth if he is using a skill saw that has a blade measuring 1/8th of an inch thick. Four cuts will eat away 1/4 inch of lumber leaving him with five pieces of wood measuring 1 foot in length.

it depends on how big the pieces are if the pieces are 2x2 there are three pieces

3x + 12 + x = 21

If you have 18 feet of ribbon and you want to cut the ribbon every 12 inches which is a foot. You will have 18 twelve inch pieces. if I am understanding your question correctly. Eighteen feet would equal 18 one foot pieces.

A koala has 18 claws. Although koalas have five digits on each of its four paws, they do not have five claws on each foot or hand. Each hand, or front foot, has five claws. However, there is no claw on the big toe of the hind foot. The second and third toes are fused together, but retain both claws, meaning that they have four claws on each hind foot.

NOTE: The problem asks to cut the board into 10 equal parts, not into equal boards proportional to the original piece of wood. Case 1: CANNOT stack wood on top of each other. Assume the board 5 feet by 2 feet. If you made one horizontal cut in the center of the board 1 foot from each edge, and then made four vertical cuts at 1 foot apart, you would then have 10 equal pieces at 1' by 1' each. Time taken: 5 minutes for 5 cuts. Case 2: CAN stack wood on top of each other. The board is 5 feet by 2 feet. Cut the board long way 1 foot from the middle and the result is 2 boards 5 feet by 1 foot. Stack these two boards on top of each other. Then, cut the stack vertically one foot from the end now making 2 pieces of wood 1' by 1' and 2 pieces of wood 4' by 1'. Then, take the 2 pieces of wood 4' by 1' and stack them on top of each other. Cut vertically once in half, so you now result in 4 boards 2' by 1'. Finally, stack these 4 pieces of wood on top of each other. Cut once vertically and you now have 8 pieces of wood 1' by 1' (plus the 2 from earlier which now make 10). Time taken: 4 minutes for 4 cuts.
