Answer:

10 Strips

Explanation:

Let simplify the #2*3/5#
That is #13/5#
Further 13 divided by 5 is equal to 2.6
i.e 2.6 inches width of each strip
Now the total width of plywood is 26 inches

so if 1 strip is of 2.6 inches so how many will be in 26 inch wide plywood

so #26/2.6=10#

Hence answer is 10 strips
