    Answer:

    The sidewalk is 34.5 inches wide.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    A sidewalk is built 12 bricks wide by laying each brick side by side.

    Brick measures 2 7/8 inches wide.

    Now, to find the width of sidewalk.

    Width of brick = 2 7/8 = 23/8.

    Number of bricks = 12.

    So, the sidewalk = width of brick × number of bricks

                                = \frac{23}{8} \times 12

                                = \frac{276}{8}

                                = 34.5\ inches

    Therefore, the sidewalk is 34.5 inches wide.
