1

A roll of rope is 85 feet 1 inch long, what is the total length of rope if 4 such rope rolls joined together?

The total length of 4 rope rolls is 340 feet 4 inches

Solution

Length of a rope roll = 85 ft 1 in

Number of rolls = 4

Number of rolls = 4

Length in inch

1 foot = 12 inch

85 ft 1 in => (85 x 12 in) + 1 in = 1021 in

Length of 4 rope rolls = 1021 x 4 = 4084 in1 foot = 12 inch

85 ft 1 in => (85 x 12 in) + 1 in = 1021 in

Length in foot

∴ The total length of 4 rope rolls is 340 feet 4 inches 1 inch =

112

foot

4084 in =>

408412

= 340 ft 4 in

2

Nathan has 3 steel pipes measuring 10 yards 32 inches, 15 yards 25 inches and 10 yards 32 inches. If all the three steel pipes are joined together, find what is the length of the single steel pipe obtained?

The total length of single steel pipe obtained is 37 yards 17 inches

Solution

Length of steel pipe 1 = 10 yd 32 in

Length of steel pipe 2 = 15 yd 25 in

Length of steel pipe 3 = 10 yd 32 in

Toatl Length of 3 steel pipes = 10 yd 32 in + 15 yd 25 in + 10 yd 32 in

= 37 yd 17 in

∴ The total length of single steel pipe obtained is 37 yards 17 inches

Length of steel pipe 2 = 15 yd 25 in

Length of steel pipe 3 = 10 yd 32 in

Toatl Length of 3 steel pipes = 10 yd 32 in + 15 yd 25 in + 10 yd 32 in

= 37 yd 17 in

∴ The total length of single steel pipe obtained is 37 yards 17 inches

3

What is the length of 1 stick, if total length of 9 sticks is 49 feet 6 inches?

5 feet 6 inches is the length of one stick

Solution

Total length of sticks = 49 ft 6 in

Number of sticks = 9

Number of sticks = 9

Length in inch

1 foot = 12 inch

49 ft 6 in => (49 x 12 in) + 6 in = 594 in

1 foot = 12 inch

49 ft 6 in => (49 x 12 in) + 6 in = 594 in

Length of 1 stick =

5949

= 66 in

Length in foot

The length of 1 stick is 5 feet 6 inches 1 inch =

112

foot

66 in =>

6612

= 5 ft 6 in

4

A tank truck covered 10 miles 5 furlongs. A pickup truck covered 8 miles 3 furlongs. What is the difference between the distance covered by the two transport vehicles?

The difference between the distance covered by 2 vehicles is 2 miles 2 furlongs

Solution

The distance covered by tank truck = 10 mi 5 fur

The distance covered by pickup truck = 8 mi 3 fur

The difference between the distance = 10 mi 5 fur - 8 mi 3 fur

= 2 mi 2 fur

∴ The difference between the distance covered by 2 vehicles is 2 miles 2 furlongs

The distance covered by pickup truck = 8 mi 3 fur

The difference between the distance = 10 mi 5 fur - 8 mi 3 fur

= 2 mi 2 fur

∴ The difference between the distance covered by 2 vehicles is 2 miles 2 furlongs

5

Tyler is 2 feet 4 inches tall and Sophia is 5 feet 6 inches tall. Who is taller & How much than another?

Sophia is 3 feet 2 inches taller than Tyler

Solution

Sophia's height = 5 ft 6 in

Tyler's height = 2 ft 4 in

Difference = 5 ft 6 in - 2 ft 4 in

= 3 ft 2 in

∴ Sophia is 3 feet 2 inches taller than Tyler.

Tyler's height = 2 ft 4 in

Difference = 5 ft 6 in - 2 ft 4 in

= 3 ft 2 in

∴ Sophia is 3 feet 2 inches taller than Tyler.

6

What is the total length of 2 rivers, if the length of 1 river is 104 miles 3 furlongs and another is 185 miles 4 furlongs?

289 miles 7 furlongs is the length of 2 rivers

Solution

Length of river 1 = 104 mi 3 fur

Length of river 2 = 185 mi 4 fur

Total Length of 2 rivers = 104 mi 3 fur + 185 mi 4 fur

= 289 mi 7 fur

∴ 289 miles 7 furlongs is the length of 2 rivers

Length of river 2 = 185 mi 4 fur

Total Length of 2 rivers = 104 mi 3 fur + 185 mi 4 fur

= 289 mi 7 fur

∴ 289 miles 7 furlongs is the length of 2 rivers

7

What was the total distance jogged by her, if Goldie jogged 10 times around the park which has the pathway length of 94 yards 2 feet?

946 yards 2 feet is the total distance jogged by Goldie

Solution

Length of pathway = 94 yd 2 ft

Number of times jogged = 10

Number of times jogged = 10

Length in foot

1 yard = 3 foot

94 yd 2 ft => (94 x 3 ft) + 2 ft = 284 ft

Total distance jogged by Goldie = 10 x 284 ft = 2840 ft1 yard = 3 foot

94 yd 2 ft => (94 x 3 ft) + 2 ft = 284 ft

Length in yard

∴ 946 yards 2 feet is the total distance jogged by Goldie 1 foot =

13

yard

2840 ft =>

28403

= 946 yd 2 ft

8

The length of oval shaped athletic track is 586 yards long. How much distance is covered, if an athletic run 5 times around?

Total distance covered by an athletic is 2930 yards

Solution

Length of track = 586 yd

Number of times completed around = 5

Total distance covered by athletic = 5 x 586 yd = 2930 yd

∴ Total distance covered by an athletic is 2930 yards

Number of times completed around = 5

Total distance covered by athletic = 5 x 586 yd = 2930 yd

∴ Total distance covered by an athletic is 2930 yards

9

A roll of paper is 37 feet 6 inches long, what is the total length of paper if 3 such paper rolls joined together?

The total length of 3 paper rolls is 112 feet 6 inches

Solution

Length of a paper roll = 37 ft 6 in

Number of rolls = 3

Number of rolls = 3

Length in inch

1 foot = 12 inch

37 ft 6 in => (37 x 12 in) + 6 in = 450 in

Length of 3 paper rolls = 450 x 3 = 1350 in1 foot = 12 inch

37 ft 6 in => (37 x 12 in) + 6 in = 450 in

Length in foot

∴ The total length of 3 paper rolls is 112 feet 6 inches 1 inch =

112

foot

1350 in =>

135012

= 112 ft 6 in

Goldie has 3 steel pipes measuring 13 yards 11 inches, 6 yards 2 inches and 8 yards 9 inches. If all the three steel pipes are joined together, find what is the length of the single steel pipe obtained?

The total length of single steel pipe obtained is 27 yards 22 inches

Solution

Length of steel pipe 1 = 13 yd 11 in

Length of steel pipe 2 = 6 yd 2 in

Length of steel pipe 3 = 8 yd 9 in

Toatl Length of 3 steel pipes = 13 yd 11 in + 6 yd 2 in + 8 yd 9 in

= 27 yd 22 in

∴ The total length of single steel pipe obtained is 27 yards 22 inches

Length of steel pipe 2 = 6 yd 2 in

Length of steel pipe 3 = 8 yd 9 in

Toatl Length of 3 steel pipes = 13 yd 11 in + 6 yd 2 in + 8 yd 9 in

= 27 yd 22 in

∴ The total length of single steel pipe obtained is 27 yards 22 inches
