• question_answer Sameer has 72.38 m of rope. He cuts off 4 pieces of rope, each measuring 8.3 m. He then shared the remaining rope equally with 2 friends. How much rope does each of them get? A)  39.18 m                      B)  13.06 m          C)    105.58 m        D)    33.2 m

Total length of the rope = 72.38 m The length of each of the 4 equal pieces cut off = 8.3 m $\therefore$ Total length of the rope cut off $=\text{ 8}.\text{3 m }\times \text{ 4 }=\text{ 33}.\text{2 m}$ The length of the remaining rope $=\text{ 72}.\text{38 m}-\text{33}.\text{2 m }=\text{39}.\text{18 m}$ The length of the rope each of Sameer and his 2 friends got $\text{39}.\text{18 m }\div \text{ 3}=\text{13}.0\text{6 m}$
