The length of a rectangular board is 10 cm longer than its width. The width of the board is 26 cm. the board is cut into 9 equal pieces.
What is the area of each piece?
What are the possible dimensions of each piece?
the length is clearly 36 cm
The pieces can be (36/9)x26 or 36x(26/9)
Assuming you want integer dimensions, I'd go with the first choice.posted by Steve
