• question_answer 35) Veena bought 4 m of ribbon. She gave away 2.53 m of it and cut the remaining ribbon into 3 pieces of equal length. Find the length of each piece of ribbon? A)  59 cm                         B)  39 cm C)    43 cm             D)    49 cm

Total length of the ribbon = 4 m Part of the ribbon given away = 2.53 m $\therefore$ Remaining part $=(\text{4}-\text{2}.\text{53})\text{m}=\text{1}.\text{47 m}$ Length of each of the 3 equal pieces $=\text{ 1}.\text{47 m }\div \text{ 3}$ (Since 1 m = 100 cm.) $=\text{ 147 cm}\div \text{3}=\text{49 cm}$
