Question

John has a 1.2-meter long piece of wood He wants to cut it into three equal pieces. The length of each piece in millimeters is___________.

  1. 120    
  2. 60    
  3. 30    
  4. 40    

Hint:

Converting meters into centimeters
1m =  100cm
converting centimeters into millimeters
1cm =10mm
Dividing the wood into 3 equal part

The correct answer is: 40


    We know, 1m = 1000mm
    1.2m = 1000 × 1.2
    = 1200mm
    As he wants to cut it into 3 equal parts, then the length of each piece is 1200/3=400mm

    Divide the wood into 3 equal parts and then convert meters into millimeters
