    Answer:

    80 pieces of wire.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    It may not come out evenly. If there is a remainder, it won’t matter. Just throw it away and go with the integer answer.

    Change 3 3/4 to a decimal

    3.75

    Change the 25 foot roll to inches.

    25 feet * 12 inches / foot  = 300 inches.

    Now how many pieces of wire do we get.

    1 piece of wire/3.75 inches = x pieces of wire / 300 inches

    3.75 * x = 300

    3.75 * x / 3.75 = 300 / 3.75

    x = 80
