Tolerancing question

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    attached picture

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I read about the virtual condition http://www.symphonytech.com/articles/GDT_Design.htm
    but I don't really understand the approach used to solve the problem and was wondering if someone could explain the solution. where does the MMC come into the the solution?

    That article is not very helpful .

    Your problem can be solved with simple arithmetic .

    Just see if you can work out the maximum and minimum possible values of dimension C so that the clearance gap always stays within stated limits for any variation of the clevis dimension .
