Piper used meter of ribbon to create a border around a triangle. If each side of the triangle is the same length, find the ribbon Piper used for each side. Select the correct equation representing the ribbon Piper used

Hint:

### The first step to dividing fractions is to find the reciprocal (reverse the numerator and denominator) of the second fraction. Next, multiply the two numerators. Then, multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the fractions if needed.

## The correct answer is:

### Here, we are given that piper uses 1/5 meter of ribbon to border around a triangle of equal side length. We have to find the expression that describes the side length of the triangle.

Total length of ribbon used = 1/5 meter.

Number of sides of a triangle = 3.

So, length of each side = 1⁄5 ÷ 3.

Hence, the correct option is C.

A figure bounded by three line segments is called a triangle and a triangle whose all sides are equal is an equilateral triangle.

In the question, another approach could be that we first reduce the second fraction in its simplest form which is 1 ( because any number by the same number is always 1).

Now the expression becomes which is equal to as any number multiplies by 1 is always the number itself.

Thus, option (a) is the correct option.
