hint: $\Large \text{Total Length} = (\text{length of 1 piece})*(\text{number of pieces})$ $\Large 8 = \frac{1}{3}x$ where x is the number of pieces. Solve for x to get your answer

if you have an 8 boards and you need 1/3 ft long pieces, that means you can cut 3 pieces per foot, and 8 feet, so 3x8=24.
