The original rope would be 8 5/8" left of rope if he cut both of the pieces from the original length of rope.

SOURCE: A wire of length 12

12.5 meters = 41.01049868766404 feet = 492.1259842519685 inches

492.1259842519685 / 10 = 49.21259842519685 inches per section

There are 2.54 cm in an inch, therefore:

49.21259842519685 x 2.54 =

125cm for each piece?

Using standard Algebra:

Long piece = 15 ft
Short piece = 5 ft

### What is the common demoniator of 2/5 and 1/8

I don't know if it just me, but when doing these questions, I always think about PIZZA.

You have one pizza divided into 5 equal pieces, and 3 are gone, leaving 2. The other pizza is divided into 8 equal pieces and only 1 piece is left.

You have the pizza cutter in your hand. How many pieces do you have to cut each pizza into to be able to describe how much pizza you have in total?

In this case, you would have to cut each pizza into 40 pieces. To determine that it is 40, we do the multiples of 5, being 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, etc. We also do the multiples of 8, being 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48. What is the first number that is common to both lists? In this case, it is 40.
Since we have to multiply the 5 by 8 to get 40, we have to multiply the 2 by 8 to get the numerator. We have to do the same with 1/8.

Good luck.

### 2 pieces of rope

Put the two pieces of rope together with one quarter of each rope protruding out at either end. The time that the ropes are both on fire simultaneously will be 45 minutes.

### Repair of pull start to garden blower

To replace the pull cord line:

If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case, purchase rope of the correct length (or cut) and the correct diameter at your local lawn/garden store, then:
1. Disconnect the long drive shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts). You may need to disconnect a wire to the kill-switch at this time.
3. Pull the cord until it stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.
6. Feed line through the recoil housing and into the recoil. Pass line through the hole in the recoil and knot the end. Trip to about .25 inch tail. Pull the rope through the grab handle and single or double knot this.
7. Remove the wedge and allow the spring to pull the rope back into the recoil.
8. If it does not completely recoil, either your rope is too long or you will need to add a "wind" to your spring buy removing the line and wind back 1 more turn. Retry.

Good luck!
