Sarah is making poster by hand to advertise her school play, but her posters are not the same length as a standand sheet of paper (the width is the same, though). She has three and a half sheets of paper left over, which she says is enough to make two and one third posters. How many sheets of paper (and parts of a sheet) does each poster use?
