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_____?

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.
