Vincent has cut three pieces of rope to complete a science project. Two pieces are of equal length. The third piece is one-quarter the length of each rope of the others. He cut the three pieces from a rope 54 meters long with any rope left over. Fine the answer of meters in each piece. [Show or explain the procedure used to obtain the answer.]

  • Meters -

    Let L be the length of the two long ropes. The third rope has length L/4

    The total length of all three ropes is
    2 1/4 L = 9L/4 and that equals 54 m

    If 9L/4 = 54, then

    L/4 = 6 m

    One more step.

  • algebra -

    L=24 METERS
