Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you want the height of 1 sheet, so if 600 sheets is 6 cm. Then 1 sheet is x cm. To get from 600 to 1 you divided by 600. So divide 6 cm by 600. You get 0.01 cm for one sheet of paper. To get 320 sheets, you need to multiple 1 sheet by 320, so likewise multiple 0.01 cm by 320 to get 3.2 cm.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.1 mm is right you can also do a proportion for the 320 sheets (without determining the thickness of 1 sheet first): 600/6cm = 320/xcm => 600x = 1920 => x = 1920/600 :: 960/300 :: 480/150 :: 240/75 :: 80/25 :: 16/5 :: 3.2
