Question

Joseph has a rope measuring 5 1 third in. He wants to cut into pieces each of length 1 1 third  in. long. The number of rope pieces he gets is ___________.

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4

Hint:

To find out how many pieces can be cut out from givrn rope we need to divide the total length of rope by the length of each piece to be cut down.

The correct answer is: 4


    STEP BY STEP SOLUTION
    Length of rope =5 1 third i n.
    Length of each piece = 1 1 third i n.
    How many pieces of same length can be cut down = Length of the rope divided by Length of each piece
    Number of pieces =
    5 1 third space divided by space 1 1 third
C o n v e r t i n g space m i x e d space f r a c t i o n space i n t o space s i m p l e space f r a c t i o n space
space equals space 16 over 3 space divided by space 4 over 3 space equals space 16 over 3 space cross times space 3 over 4 space equals space 48 over 12 space equals space 4
    Number of pieces that can be cut from given rope =4
