Question

If 24 pairs of trousers of equal size can be prepared with 54 m of cloth, what length of cloth is required for each pair of trousers?

Hint:

Perform division and then find the cloth required for 1 trouser.

The correct answer is: 9/4 m


    Let the cloth required for one trouser = x meters
    Then the cloth required for 24 equal size trousers =  54 m
    That is, 24x = 54
    On dividing both the sides by 24, we get fraction numerator 24 x over denominator 24 end fraction equals 54 over 24
    not stretchy rightwards double arrow 1 x equals 9 over 4 equals 2.25 straight m
    Hence, cloth required for one trouser x equals 9 over 4
