    Center of the door

    26 1/3 divided by 2

    change to an improper fraction

    (3*26+1)/3 =79/3

    79/3 divided by 2

    copy dot flip

    79/3 * 1/2

    79/6

    change to a mixed number

    13 1/6

    10 1/4 divided by 2

    change to an improper fraction (4*10+1)/2 = 41/4

    41/4 divided  by 2

    copy dot flip

    41/4 * 1/2 =41/8

    change to a mixed number

    5 1/8

    the left of the bar should be 5 1/8 from the center

    to find how far from the left side to place the bar

    13 1/6 – 5 1/8 =

    get a common denominator

    13 4/24 – 5 3/24= 8 1/24 inches

    Answer:  place the bar 8 1/24 inches  from each  edge
