**You will want to Download the file and then print the .pdf file. When you print, make sure that scaling is turned off enabling the document to print at 100%. Take a moment to measure. The Solid Line along the side edge of section B should measure 6". If you print directly from the Google Docs screen you might come out with a slightly smaller sized block.**
