    Question 2 years ago on Step 3

    The print out we have doesn’t measure the same as the instructions say. I assume that 6.5” means 6 and a half inches, 6.25” means 6 and a quarter inches, etc., but these do not add up to 54”.
    Am I reading these numbers incorrectly? Or am I not printing the instructions correctly?
    Thank you!
