A piece of ribbon is 4 yards long, with no ribbon left over. If each piece is 9 inches ong, what is the value of x?

  • Geometry -

    I suppose x is supposed to represent the number of pieces of ribbon.

    Total length = 9yards*36inches/yard=144 inches.

    Length of each piece = 9 inches/piece

    Number of pieces
    =144 inches / (9 inches/piece)
    = 16 pieces

  • Geometry -

    36*4= 144
    144/9=16

    X= 16 peices
