You have 15 yards of ribbon for your gift boxes. each box gets the same amount of ribbon. How much ribbon will each box get

  • math 6th grade -

    How many boxes do you have?

  • math 6th grade -

    20

  • math 6th grade -

    i think the answer is 5 feet

    Ahh! Thanks.

    Divide 15 yards by 20 boxes.

    15 / 20 = 0.75 = 3/4 yard for each box.

  • math 6th grade -

    1 yard = 3 feet = 36 inches

    3/4 yard = (3/4) * 36 = 27 inches = 2 feet and 3 inches

    Let's try your answer:

    5 feet * 20 = 100 feet = 33.3 yards. Five feet is too much. You don't have that much ribbon.

    what i ended up getting is 2.25 feet and 0.75 yards

  • math 6th grade -

    That's right.

  • math 6th grade -

    3/4 ribbon.
