The smaller the gage the thicker the material; therefore, for the same material, 14 gage is stronger.

### A 75 foot tree trunk is cut into three pieces The longest piece is three times the smallest piece and the other piece is 5 feet longer than the smaller piece Find the length of each piece?

Let p be the size of the smallest piece. Then we know that it (p) plus the middle piece (p + 5) and the longest piece (3 x p) adds up to 75. p + (p+5) + 3p = 75 =&gt; 2p + 5 + 3p = 75 =&gt; 5p = 75 - 5 =&gt; 5p = 70 =&gt; p = 14 So the smallest piece is p = 14 ft. The middle piece is p + 5 = 19 ft. And the largeset peice is 3p = 42 ft. Adding the sizes to check: 14 + 19 + 42 = 75
