Yes, Sam and Lou have enough wire for science project.

Step-by-step explanation:

There is some data missing in the question, so complete question is below:

$$Sam’s\ wire\ measured\ 8/12\ foot\ long.\ Lou’s\ measured\ 7/8-\ foot \ \ long.$$$$Explain \ your\ reasoning.$$

Now, to get that whether they have enough wire for the science project or not.

Measurement of Sam’s wire =

Measurement of Lou’s wire =

Now, adding both the wires of Sam and Lou:

As, Sam and Lou need a total of 1 foot of wire for the science project.

And, we see that the Sam’s wire and Lou’s wire combining gets which is more than 1 foot.

Thus, wire they have is enough for science project.

Therefore, yes, Sam and Lou have enough wire for science project.
