Answer:I’ll setup up the problem and you can do the calculation

Step-by-step explanation:Total length of string – L = 8m

Multiple pieces is – 0.75m

Number of multiple pieces that are 0.75m – n

Remaining (last) piece – R

what we need to solve

R = L – (0.75n)

first find n by dividing L by 0.75 taking only the whole number (throw away the fraction)

n = 8/0.75 (I’ll leave that calculate to you)

Then substitute n in the equation above to get R
