Q:
# A bolt extends through 3/4” thick plywood, a washer that is 1/8” thick, and a nut that is 3/16” thick. The bolt should be 5/8” longer than the sum of the thickness of the plywood, washer and nut. What is the minimum length of the bolt?

Accepted Solution

A:

(3/4" +1/8" +3/16" +5/8") = (12 +2 +3 +10)/16" = 1 11/16"

The bolt needs to be a minimum of 1 11/16 inches in length.
