You want to place a towel bar that is 24 1⁄4 centimeters long in the center of a door that is 70 1⁄3 centimeters wide. How far should you place the bar from each edge of the door? (Write the answer as a mixed number.)

From this picture we can see that:

x24 + 1/4 + x = 70 + 1/3

2x + 24 + 1/4 = 70 + 1/3

2x = 70 + 1/3 - 24 - 1/4

x = (70 + 1/3 - 24 - 1/4) / 2

x = 553/24

x = 23 + 1/24 cm
