Convert the 9m of cloth to cm = 900 cm to start with.
She has 90 cm of cloth left so she used
900 cm  90 cm = 810 cm of cloth
Let X = cloth for tablecloth
Let 2X = cloth for each cushion cover.
The equation would be:
810 = X + 4 * 2x
810 = X + 8X
810 = 9X
X=90cm
2X=2(90cm) = 180 cm
So the tablecloth = 90 cm, and each cushion cover is 180 cm.
