math help

I know I feel so stupid for asking this but I haven't done math since highschool. I've spent the last hour trying to figure this out. Help would be appreciated. I am trying to install 10 switches on a 15.5" dash panel. the switches are round so how far apart do i drill the holes if i want it to look pretty and centered?

ok- if you give 1.25" of space on each end and then space them 1.5" in between, you should be lookin' gravy

take the total space and subtract the space you want on each side then subtract the size of switches this will give you the space left to be divide between the switches illustration below



:EDIT: I see someone beat me to the line but i figured i'd fix the illustration. If you have any questions let me know.

this way you have 1.25" of space next to each of the last switches...does that make sense? let's see if i can"draw" this:

l (1.25") * (1.5") * (1.5") * (etc) * (1.25") l

end of board^ * = drill hole ^other end of board
