A manufacture of bird feeders cute spacers from a tube that is 6 1/9inches long. How many spacers can be cut from the tube if each spacer must be 5/9inches thick? The estimate answer is _____? The exact number of spacers is_____?

10. fnuuosh

First it would be much easier if the values are changed into decimals. 6 1/9=6.11 5/9=.55, So to estimate you would want to say 6/.5, so 12. To fine the exact dumber you will divide 6.11 by .55 If it is .anything you will round down.

11. MauriceLong

estimate is 12. exact is 11.1090 i have too type a whole number or a simplified fraction

12. fnuuosh
