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.
