A tailor purchased 125 meter of cloth. To stitch one dress he needs 2.25 meter. How many dresses can he stitch using 125 meter of cloth? Will there be any cloth left over? If so how much?

1 Answer

Cloth needed to stitch 1 dress = 2.25 meter
Total cloth available = 125 meter
Number of dresses that can be stitched = 125 / 2.25 = 55 dresses
Remaining cloth = 125 - (55 * 2.25) = 125 - 123.75 = 1.25 meter
