(a) 4 x 4 =16
(b) 3 x 3 =9
------------------
25

The square root of 25 is 5

To show how it works for hole locations, if it's a 1/2" hole where "a" and "c" insect and also where "b" and "c" insect, then I would subtract each hole radii ( since they are the same size this time, then subtract the hole diameter ) and I should measure exactly 4.500 ( 4-1/2" ) in the inside edges of the hole.


and if I screwed up, send it to the welder so I can try again
