28 Strips

Step-by-step explanation:

Total Ribbon Length = 4m

First, we convert the total length to cm for ease of calculation.

1m = 100cm

4m =4 X 100cm =400cm

Total Ribbon Length = 400cm

Length of Strips=14cm

Number of Strips that can be cut

= Total Ribbon Length ÷ Length Per Strip

=400 ÷ 14 = A total of 28 strips can be cut with a leftover ribbon of 8cm.

28

Step-by-step explanation:

A ribbon of length 4m is be cut into strips of length 14cm . How many strips of length 14cm were cut.

To solve this, we will first change the 4m to cm

since 1m = 100cm,

4m = 400cm

Now, to get the number of 14 cm , we will divide 400 cm by 14 cm

400 cm ÷ 14 cm = 28 So we are going to have 28  14 cm strips
