Sofia wants to place a sticker 2 1/2 inches long in the center of a switch box that 3 3/4 inches wide, about how far from the edge will you place the switch box?

the amount of space to be divided equally    =  3 3/4 - 2 1/2  =  1 1/4 inches

 

1 1/4  / 2  =   5/8  inch on each side of the label to the edge

Thought I did....

 here is more....    the sticker takes up 2 1/2 inches  of 3 3/4 inches   leaving   1 1/4 inches not covered by sticker

     divide this  1 1/4 inches in two .... this will be the amount of space on each side of the sticker to the edge   1 1/4  / 2  = 5/4 / 2 = 5/8 inch
