Q:
# Tia cut a 4 meter 8 centimeter wire into 10 equal pieces. Marta cut a 540 centimeter wire into 9 equal pieces. how much longer is one of Marta's wires than one of Tia's?

Accepted Solution

A:

one meter is 100 meters so 4 meter 8 centimeter is 400 centimeter + 8 centemeter=408. if we cut that into 10 equal pieces, we get 40.8. Marta has 540 centimeters to cut into 9 pieces. 540/9=60. 60-40.8=19.2 marta's wire is 19.2 centimeters longet than tia's
