# A skirt that is 35 (7/8) cm long has a hem of 3(1/8) cm. How long will the skirt be if the hem is let down?

Given

Length of the skirt = $35\frac{7}{8}$ cm

Dimension of hem = $3\frac{1}{8}$ cm

Find out

We have to determine the length of skirt, if hem is let down

Solution

On converting the given mixed fraction into improper fraction we obtain

Length of the skirt = $35\frac{7}{8}$ cm = 287/8 cm

Dimension of hem = $3\frac{1}{8}$ cm = 25/8 cm

Length of skirt, if hem is let down = ((287/8) + (25/8)) cm

= 312/8 cm

= 39 cm

The length of skirt, if hem is let down=39cm
