- First I had to find how many times does 1 3/4 goes into 15 1/4.
- I made this easier for myself by changing the fractions into decimals.
- Then I found out that 1.75 goes into 15.25, eight times.
- This is because 1.75 x 8 = 14 and if you were to multiply by a higher number, your answer will be longer than 15.25. For example 1.75 x 9 = 15.75.
- This now let's us know that 14.00 m of the plank is cut in equal pieces of 8.
- Now we have to find out how much of the plank is left over.
- We find the solution to this by subtracting the length of the plank which is 15.25 by 14.
- 15.25 - 14.00 = 1.25 m
- So there is 1.25 m left over of the wooden plank.
