Answer:

The answer is #16 * 4 = 64# inches.

Explanation:

If the rope is being cut into fourths, it is being cut into #4# pieces. We know each piece is #16# inches.

To find the length of the whole rope, we could put all #4# pieces back together.

There are #4# pieces and each piece is #16# inches. So we multiply
#4 xx 16# and we get #64# inches.

If you wanted your answer in feet, you would divide #64# by #12# because there are #12# inches in a foot. You would get about #5.3# feet.
