I’ve found several different answers that are significantly different from each other so I don’t know how to answer the question planely. I think the most popular answer to this question is 6 inches within the first 10 feet as shown in this question:
which is repeated here:
But here it starts to get really confusing. Could someone explain to me how this next one can be reconsiled with 6 inches in 10 feet?
This next one is even more strange. The first two options are functionally the exact same answer but only one of them is correct. How can that be possible?
So, what’s the difference between the first and second option?
- 1 inch per foot for every 2 feet
- 1 inch per foot for every 6 feet
One inch per foot is not affected by the “every 2 feet” or “every 6 feet”. It will still be one inch per foot for however many feet you want. So what’s the difference? And one inch per foot works out to 10 inches in 10 feet which is not the same as 6 inches in 10 feet or 12 inches in 10 feet. So we have 3 different possilbe answers here so far and I’m not sure I’ve found them all.
