: This should be easy, but I keep getting confused.
: Say I have a piece of plywood in shape of a quadrilateral, sides 8,7,6,5 feet.
: How long will a board 2 feet wide be if I use all the material?
: Assume "cutting" is possible in order to make up the board.
: Do I simply add the sides, then divide by 2 (8+7+6+5=26/2=13)?
then 2*(what length) = area?
