An 8.5-by-11-inch piece of paper is folded in half repeatedly (never being unfolded), each time shortening what was then the longer side. What is the length of the shortest side, in inches, immediately after the second fold? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth.

Hello Guest!

 

  \(8.5\times 11\)

            \(5.5\times 8.5\)                        1

                     \(4.25\times 5.5\)             2

 The length of the shortest side, in inches, immediately after the second fold is 4.3 inch.
