Answer:

2/3

Step-by-step explanation:

Glenn needs to cut pieces of ribbon that are each 1 meter long to make ribbon key chains. If he has 6 pieces of ribbon that are each 1 dekameter long, how many 1−meter pieces of ribbon can he cut?

1 decametre = 10 metres

Hence,

10 meters = 6 pieces of ribbon

1 meter = x pieces

Cross Multiply

10x = 6

x = 6/10

x = 2/3 (1 meter pieces of ribbon)
