Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

we can convert all measurements to inches

  1. 2 1/2 yards= 90 inches.........(since 1 yard=36 inches)
  2. 2 feet = 24inches....(1 feet=12inches)
  3. 24 inches + 8 inches=32 inches
  4.  answer= 36-32=4 inches

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
