He will be able to cut the piece of pipe into 30 sections, each 10 cm long.

Step-by-step explanation:

A plumber has a piece of pipe that is 3−meter long.

He needs to cut it into sections that are 10 centimetres long.

This means that he wants to cut the pipe into an equal number of 10-centimetre pipes.

First let us convert 3 metres to centimetres.

1 metre = 100 centimetre

=> 3 metres = 3 * 100 = 300 centimetres.

Since he wants to divide this 300 cm pipe into equal parts of 10 cm, we divide 300 cm by 10 cm. This will yield:

300 / 10 = 30 sections

Therefore, he will be able to cut the piece of pipe into 30 sections, each 10 cm long.
