    8 / (3/4) =

    8 * (4/3) = 32/3 = 10 2/3

    The remaining piece is 2/3 foot.

  • math - correction - ,

    No way to divide an integer by multiples of 1/4 and end up with a multiple of 1/3 left over.

    no, the remaining piece is 2/3 of one section

    2/3 * 3/4 = 1/2

    That is, 10 pieces = 30/4 feet, leaving 2/4 feet remaining.
