An interior designer hangs canvas paintings along a hallway. If the interior designer uses canvas paintings with length measuring
inches and places them side by side along the hallway that has a length of
feet, how many paintings does the designer hang?

1 Answer

  • The number of paintings the designer can hang is 32.

    In order to determine how many paintings the painter can hang, the length of the hallway would be divided by the length of the paintings.

    Number of paintings = length of hallway / length of paintings

    The unit of measurement of the hallway and the paintings have to be the same length,

    1 foot = 12 inches

    24 feet x 12 = 288 inches

    Number of paintings = 288 / 9 = 32 paintings
