Kelani wants to cut a piece of rope into several equally-sized pieces and then have a
-foot piece of rope (find n).
represents this length of rope.
Now solve the equation to find
from both sides.
Divide each side by
-foot piece of rope (find x).
You can use the equation
to represent this length of rope.
Follow the steps outlined in part (a) to solve for
-foot piece of rope (find j).
Can you write your own equation for this rope?
Remember that there are only
j's and the total length is feet.
