the answer would be 33. so the first thing you want to do is turn 7 feet into inches. if 12 inches is equal to 1 foot then 7 feet are equal to 84 inches. then add another 84  inches which will equal 168. the you would want to divide 168/15 which gives you 33.6. this mean that 33 (separate numbers) 15 inches of board from two boards.hope I was able to help and that my explanation made sense. : )
