We need sixteen, three and three-quarter-inch widgets with a gap of fifty-seven thousandths; twenty, four and three-eighth-inch widgets with a gap of two hundred forty-nine ten-thousandths of an inch; and twenty-five widget connectors with clamps that adjust from one and twenty-three hundredths inches to five and three hundred seventy- six thousandths. Please bill and ship the order to the usual address. Thanks.

b. If widgets cost $4.80 per inch regardless of gap size and connectors cost $17.95 each, calculate the total cost of the order.

(a)

To determine

The numeral form for the production department, if client needs sixteen, three and three-quarter-inch widgets with a gap of fifty-seven thousandths; twenty, four and three-eight-inch widgets with a gap of two hundred forty-nine ten-thousandths of an inch; and twenty-five widget-connector with clamps that adjust from one and twenty-three hundredths inches to five and three hundred seventy-six thousandths.

Explanation

Given Information:

Client needs sixteen, three and three-quarter-inch widgets with a gap of fifty-seven thousandths; twenty, four and three-eight-inch widgets with a gap of two hundred forty-nine ten-thousandths of an inch; and twenty-five widget-connector with clamps that adjust from one and twenty-three hundredths inches to five and three hundred seventy-six thousandths.

First consider the first statement which says “sixteen, three and three-quarter-inch widgets with a gap of fifty-seven thousandths”

Here, in this statement quantity is 16 and the measurements are “three and three-quarter-inch widget with a gap of fifty-seven thousandths”

Which can be written in numeral form as 334 inch widget with a gap of 0.057 inches.

Similarly, solve for second statement which says “twenty, four and three-eighth-inch widget with a gap of two hundred forty-nine thousandths of an inch”

The first word twenty represent the quantity here, and the remaining statement talk about the measurement of the widget, which is, four and three-eighth-inch widget with a gap of two hundred forty-nine thousandths of an inch.

And this can be written in the numeral form as, quantity is 20 and measurements are 438 inch widget with a gap of 0.0249 inches.

Similarly, solve for third statement which says “twenty-five widget-connector with clamps that adjust from one and twenty-three hundredths inches to five and three hundred seventy-six thousandths”

The word twenty-five widget represent the quantity here, and the remaining statement talk about the measurement of the widget, which is, clamps that adjust from one and twenty-three hundredths inches to five and three hundred seventy-six thousandths

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The total cost of the order if widget cost $4.80 per inches regardless of gap size and connectors cost $17.95 each.
