$\frac{1}{8} m = 12.5 c m$

#### Explanation:

We can divide $\frac{5}{4}$ by 20 to find out the length of each piece:

$\frac{5}{4} \div 20 = \frac{\cancel{5}}{4} \times \frac{1}{\cancel{20}} ^ 4 = \frac{1}{8}$ of a metre

Since $\frac{1}{8} = 0.125$, we can also say each piece is 12.5 centimetres long
