how many 3 3/4 inch wires can be cut from a spool of wire that is 100 inches long will there be any wire left over? if so how much?

• 6th grade math -

3 3/4 = 15/4.

Wires=100in/(15/4) = 100 * 4/15 = 26 2/3

2/3 * 3 3/4 = 2/3 * 15/4 = 2.5 Inches left over.

So we have 26-3 3/4 inch wires with 2.5
inches left over.
