    I like your math, but you can't make 3/5 of a bag

    one bag takes 2/5 yards. there are totally 14 yards. so total bags = 14/2/5 = 35 bags

    no, d, 14*2 = 28 and 28/5 = 5 and 3/5, not 35

    what it means is, you can make 1 bag with two-fifths of a yard. so with one yard, you can make two and a half bags. so with fourteen yards you can make 14 times 2.5
