I'm laying a floor in my showroom and need help with some math10/1
I just bought a building to move my company to and I'm trying to determine how much space ill have at the last piece
My overall wall is 130 and my boards are 5.75 wide. I took the board, held it off the wall .375l, so from the far wall to the edge of my board is 129-5/8" divided by 5.75 and that gave me 22.543
I got the 22 pieces and im struggling with how to determine how much space I'll have left to the wall after last full piece before the last board goes in.
How do I determine how wide .543 is of a 5.75" wide board? I thought it was 5.75/ .543 but i've laid out the whole thing on the floor to double check myself and I'm not only wrong, but my math is nowhere close. The space from the edge of the board to the ending wall is about 3".
5.75 x .543 = 3.12225
Thx. I appreciate the response, but knowing how you knew that was the math and "how" is what I'd like to know. Just giving me the "answer" doesn't help me with the "why"
You found that you needed 22.543 pieces to span the whole distance right? So you need 22 pieces, plus another .543 of a piece (a little over half a piece). So if you multiply the piece width by .543, you'll get the width you need.
Also don't forget, in your calculation you took of 3/8" on the first end, but not the other one...
Thanks to both of u. I really appreciate it. Yes, I know I didn't deduct 3/8" off the other side in my mathematics, as I just wanted to see how it would work out
Excel ceiling basically is rounding up to whole number divided by 5.75 where a1 if formula, b1 is dimension of room and c1 is size of board, the ,1 if the number to round to (1 whole 5.75)
