Ok. You need to find out how many 2/5 ft pieces fit in 14 ft.
This is a division problem.
You can do this 2 ways.
1) Find the decimal that 2/5 is equal to.
All you need to do is divide 2 by 5.
Once you have 2/5 as a decimal, divide 14 by that decimal.
2) Keep 2/5 as a fraction, and divide 14 by 2/5.
When you divide a number by a fraction, keep the first number as it is. Flip the fraction, and multiply the number and the fraction together.
