Don intended to place a mark 2 1/4 inches from one end of a narrow end 9 1/4 inches long, but he mistakenly placed the mark 2 1/4 inches from the other end. How far, in inches, is his mark from the location where he intended to place it?

4 3/4 ?

total lenght 9 1/4 need to put the mark at 2 1/4 form the end, so 9 1/4 - 2 1/4 = 7
The mark was put in 2 1/4, so 7- 2 1/4 = 4 3/4
