Question

A fence is to have seven boards between two posts so that the space between each board is the same.Calculate the distance between each board anser as a fraction.
if the carpenter decided the distance between boards was too large ,would it be possible to add an extra board by decreasing the space between each board? dash are commonly placed between whole numbers and fractions so 21 7/8 is not mistaken for 217/8
the length of the fence is 21 7/8 each board is 2 5/8 what is the space between them if there is seven boards
