4. Note there are 12 inches in a foot. Multiply 12 by 10 to get the total inches which is 120". Divide 120" by the number of legs (6) 120÷6 which gives you 20". Each legs will be 20" long.

5. This is not a simple divide 10 by 6 answer and besides where would you find 1 2/3" on a measuring tape. Sorry Sue
