### How can you cut a 8 foot by 3 foot board into two pieces so that both pieces together cover a 12 foot by 2 foot board?

With the board with the 3 ft edge towards you mark 1 ft from the
right hand edge. 4 ft along the right hand edge mark in 1 ft. Join
the 1 ft marks.
Turn the board around so that the other 3 ft ends is towards you
and repeat the markings.
Now join the ends of the lines at the centre of the board (with
should be 1 ft long).
Now cut along the lines.
Shift the right hand piece up and left so that the cut edge is
on top of the 8 ft length to create a board almost* 12 ft by 2
ft:

### What is the volume of a 10ft. X 6ft. X 22in. rectangle?

A "10 ft x 6 ft x 22 in" object is not a rectangle; a
rectangle is a 2 dimensional shape whereas that is a three
dimensional object - it is a cuboid.
To calculate the volume of a "10 ft x 6 ft x 22 in"
cuboid you need to work in one unit - either feet or
inches:
12 in = 1 ft
⇒ 10 ft x 6 ft x 22 in = 10 ft x 6 ft x (22 ÷ 12) ft
= 110 cu ft
or:
1 ft = 12 in
⇒ 10 ft x 6 ft x 22 in = (10 x 12) in x (6 x 12) in x 22 in
= 190080 cu in
