If the head is 4 in. Then the tail is too. So thats 8 in. And the body is 3/4 when the head and tail is 1/4. So take 8 inches and triple it. You get 24 in. For the body. Now add the 8 inches from the head and tail.

32 inches? Or did i mess up lol

That doesn't make sense... If the tail is 1/4 and the body is 3/4... Where does the head come in? Lol or maybe I'm confused

The head and the tail are the same length, so if the head is 8 in, so is the tail.

No the tail is the length of the head plus a quarter of the body

I thought it was the tail is equal to the head and its also equal to a quarter of the body. Like head = tail = quarter of body
