Question 331 Rational Numbers - Exercise

5½ metres long rope is cut into 12 equal pieces. What is the length of each piece?


Length of rope is equal to length of one piece multiplied by total number of equal pieces.

From the question it is given that,

The length of rope = 5½ m = 11/2 m

The total number of pieces = 12

Let us assume the length of one piece of rope be y.


12y = 11/2 m

y = (11/2) × (1/12)

y = 11/24

∴The length of one piece of rope 11/24.
