Solve these problems about lumber dimensions.(a) To describe to a European how houses are constructed in the US, the dimensions of "two-by-four" lumber must be converted into metric units. The thickness $\times$ width $\times$ length dimensions are 1.50 in. $\times 3.50$ in. $\times 8.00 \mathrm{ft}$ in the US. What are the dimensions in $\mathrm{cm} \times \mathrm{cm} \times \mathrm{m} ?$(b) This lumber can be used as vertical studs, which are typically placed 16.0 in. apart. What is that distance in centimeters?

a) $3.8 \mathrm{cm} \times 8.9 \mathrm{cm} \times 2.43 \mathrm{m}$b) 40.64 $\mathrm{cm}$

a live one. Um, this is Ricky. And today we're working on a problem. 85. All right, so we're given, um, were given two dimensions of a house and interest and feet, and we have to convert them two centimeters. Andrea is in the eye and meters, and then we're also told that lumber could be uses vertical studs, which replaced 16 inches apart. We have to convert that distance into from inches to centimeters. So some good relationships, no one inch equal to 2.54 centimeters. One foot 0.3048 meters. So if we have 1.5 inches times 3.5 inches times eat feet, what we want to do is but, uh, convert them. She centimeters by multiplying by our ratio, rambled through the same thing here. Yeah. Here, cut there. Multiply by our our conversion factor for feet. She's 0.8 ute and you'll see that we get 3.8 centimeters. Bye. 8.9 since meters by 2.43 meters. And the second part of the question, um, we're given that studs air placed 16 inches apart. This is a It's just being how far is this apart? In centimeters multiplied by cheap 154 centimeters Looks are inches. We get 46 47 years Help. The city was helpful. You know, we'll see you the next one.
