Answer:25.2 in

Step-by-step explanation:The short piece will have a length that is 2/(2+3) = 2/5 of the entire usable length. The usable length is 60-2 = 58 inches long, so the cut will be …

(2/5)(58 in) = 23 1/5 in

from the beginning of the usable part. Since the usable part of the ribbon starts 2 inches in, the cut will be 23 1/5 + 2 =

25 1/5 inchesfrom the frayed end of the ribbon.Answer:25.2
