Mario is setting up a new tent during a camping trip. The tent came with 7 feet of rope. The instructions are to use 34.5 inches of the rope to tie a tarp on top of the tent. Then, the remaining rope should be cut into 8¼-inch sections to tie the tent to stakes in the ground. Mario will use all of the rope as instructed. Write and solve an equation to determine the number of 8¼-inch sections of rope Mario can cut from the rope.
Steps: 2 of 2
Step 2Nice work, 49.5 is correct.
Now, how many times can Mario cut 8¼ inch sections from the rope before he has no rope left?
