jack has a cable that is 22.4 ft. long. He wants to cut it into pieces that are 38.4 inches long? how many 38.4 inch pieces will he get from the cable?

is it 16 pieces?

    Let's see --

    22.4 * 12 = 268.8 inches

    16 * 38.4 = 614.4 inches

    Nope. He sure won't get 16 pieces.

    Please try again.
