1 Answer

Answer:

#x=10# bandanas can be made

Explanation:

So we know that to make a dog bandana we must have 12 inches of material.

First of all we will convert yards into inches

#1 " yard "=36# Inches so #3 1/3 " yards "= x# Inches

Yard : inches
#" " 1 : 36#
#" "3 1/3:x#
#" "10/3:x#

#x = 10/3 xx 36#

#x=120# Inches

Note: #3 1/3 !=3.33#
#3 1/3# is exact while #3.33# has been rounded off from the recurring decimal #3.33333333..

Now we will calculate how many bandanas #120# Inches can make:

Bandana : amount
#" "1:12#
#" "x:120#

#" "x=10#
