Answers

Answer:

40 ribbons. 5/12 m of ribbon will be left

Step-by-step explanation:

Divide the total amount of ribbon by the length of each piece of ribbon:

48 1/2 ÷ 1 1/5

Convert the mixed numbers to improper or top heavy-fractions

97/2 ÷ 6/5

Keep – Change – Flip to turn into a multiplication problem

97/2 × 5/6 = 485/12 = 40 5/12

This means she can cut 40 whole ribbons and the remainder is 5/12 meters.
