A classroom table is 1 meter wide and 1.75 meters long. How many 39 centimeter chairs can fit around the table?

One meter = 100 centimeters. Divide 100 by 39 to find how many chairs will fit along the 1meter wide side. Multiply by 2.
1.75 meters = 175 centimeters. Divide by 39 and multiply the answer by 2.
What do you get? We'll be glad to check your answer.
