1. Answer: she can make 3 bows.

Step-by-step explanation:

Courtney is making bows for red ribbon week she needs 2 3/4 feet of ribbon for each bow. Converting

2 3/4 feet to improper fraction, it becomes 11/4 feet.

Courtney has 10 1/4 feet of ribbon. Converting 10 1/4 feet to improper fraction, it becomes 41/4 feet. Therefore, the number of bows that she can make would be

(41/4)/(11/4) = 41/4 × 4/11 = 41/11 = 3.72

Since the number of bows cannot be a fraction, then the number if bows that she can make is 3

2. 3 just do division, always round down when dealing with real life objects as you cannot make more
