Answer:Letâ€™s use easier

nbers first.

if the bookshelf was 12 inches long, and the books were 6 inches wide, how many can you fit on the shelf? If you said 2, you are correct. You actually divided to find the answer. 6/12=2.

Use the same processs with your original question.

1 1/4 / 42 = 5/4 X 1/42 = 5/168 = 33.6

answer is 33
