Ms. Sue,
What do you think?
I'll be glad to check your answer. 
math 
Elijah,
3/5 meters of fabric

math 
Ms. Sue,
That doesn't make sense.
3/5 * 6 = 18/5 = 3 3/5 meters. But you have 10 meters.
Each flag must have more than a meter in it.
10/6 = ? 
math 
Elijah,
1 4/6

math 
Ms. Sue,
Right. Each flag must have 1 2/3 meters or 1.66667 meters.
