Question 111 Rational Numbers - Exercise

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

Answer:

From the question it is given that,

The length of rope = 5½ m = \frac{11}{2} m

The total number of pieces = 12

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

So,

12y = \frac{11}{2} m

y = \frac{11}{2} × \frac{1}{12}

y =\frac{11}{24}

∴The length of one piece of rope \frac{11}{24} .
