Quinn is hanging a framed picture that is 10 inches wide and 6 inches tall on a wall that is 8 feet 3 inches wide and 7 feet 6 inches tall. When the picture is exactly centered on the wall, the left edge of the picture frame is x feet y inches from the left edge of the wall. What is the value of y, if y < 12? Express your answer as a mixed number.

8 ft 3 in  =  12 * 8 + 3 =    99 in  =  width of wall

 

Center of  width  =  99/2 =  49.5 inches  from  the wall

 

The left edge of the picture  is at   (49.5) - (10/2)  = 49.5 -  5  =  44.5 in  from  the  wall  =

 

3 feet  8.5  in  =     3 + 8.5/12 ft   =   3 + 17/24  ft
