    simple math question

    Hi, i am making a gate out of metal, the gape between the two side bars is 1420mm, i need to fit 11 metal bars in side with equal spacing between them all, the bars are 14mm wide each, how do i calculate for the space between them to be equal.
    Thank you

    Assuming there is 10 spaces try \frac{1420 - 14\times 11}{10}
