**Christy bought an 8-foot piece of lumber too trim a bookshelf.**

Altogether, she needs 100 inches of lumber for the trim.

Did Christy buy enough lumber?

Explain.

I was thinking No because 1 foot= 12 inches and so 12 x 8=96 so she didn't buy enough lumber?

(Please correct me if I'm wrong. )

**Answer**

1 foot= 12 inches 12*8= 96 inches.

Christy didn't buy enough lumber because 8 foot is less than 100 inches.

* foot equals 96 inches and it is less than 100 inches.
