In woodworking class, Carlos has a board with a length of 10 5/6 inches. He cut two boards from it at a length of 2 1/4 inches each. How much of the original board is left?

Show work instead of guessing. We get nothing when you guess

10  5/6  =   65/6

 

2  1/4    =  9/4

 

2 (9/4)  =   9/2

 

So   the  length  left   is

 

65/6  -  9/2    =

 

65/6  -  27/6   =

 

38 / 6    =

 

19 / 3    =

 

6 1/3   in
