Rafi had a board that was 15 1/2 feet long.

He cut three pieces off the board that are each 3 7/8 feet long.
How much of the board is left?

Answer

To answer this question, first we need to figure out how much of the board Rafi cut off.
To do this, we need to multiply the length of each piece by the number of pieces he cut off.
3 7/8 = 3.875 3.875 * 3 = 11.625 Now, because we knew Rafi cut off 11.625 feet off of the board, we just need to subtract this length from the length of the entire board to find the remaining length.
15 1/2 = 15.5 15.5 - 11.625 = 3.875 There is 3.875 feet or 3 7/8 of the board left.
