# A piece of plywood 26 inches wide is cut into strips 2 3/5 inches wide. How many strips of this width can be cut?

10 Strips

#### Explanation:

Let simplify the $2 \cdot \frac{3}{5}$
That is $\frac{13}{5}$
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 $\frac{26}{2.6} = 10$
