### Question Description

A student solved this problem and said the answer was 3 feet.

Gina had two pieces of ribbon. One was foot long and the other was foot long. What was the total length of both pieces of ribbon combined?

Is the student's answer reasonable?

## Explanation & Answer

Hi !

one ribbon = 5/8 foot

one ribbon = 1/4 foot

Total = 5/8 + 1/4

= (5+2)/8

= 7/8 foot

So its not 3 feet.

Hope you get it. Thanks :)
