Bruce needs 30 five-foot pieces of rope for a school project. The hardware store sells rope by the yard. How many yards of rope will Bruce need to purchase?
All you need to do is find the total amount of rope you need so the 30 x 5 (which equals 150 feet of rope btw) You then divide by three to get the number of yards, so 150/3= 50. So Bruce needs to purchase 50 yards of rope.
total amount of rope:30x5=150 150
÷3=50 50 YARDS OF ROPE is the answer
