2 questions: how you know 1 foot = 12 inch?
and the question says the gap between a pair of pickets, or between 2 pickets and other 2 is 6 inch, not between just 2.



GMAT will give you the relation between units such as feet and inches.

Also, the question says: "If there are 6 inches of space between each pair of pickets".
So you can pick up any two adjacent pickets - distance between them will be 6 inches.

Bunuel Please can you explain how (X pickets) mean (X-1 fences).

Later why the distance between 2 pickets :6: has been multiple with X-1?

Appreciate your help.

Next, each space is 6 inches wide, so if there are x-1 spaces then the width of the spaces is 6(x-1).
