I asked this question but no one answered it. Can someone please help explain this before I have my math test today. THANKS.
A carpenter has several boards of equal length. He cuts 3/5 of each board. After cutting the boards the carpenter noticies he has enough pieces left to make up the same length as 4 origional boards. How many origional boards did he start with?
Someone told me the answer is 10 but I do not understand how they got it. I would like to know how to do the question, so can you explain the steps.
Thanks
