A woman has 100 meters of cloth that she wants to divide into segments of 1 m each. If it takes her 3 seconds to make one cut, how long will it take for her to divide the whole length? Assume she must make individual cuts and cannot stack the cloth an cut it all at once.

well you need 100-1=99 cuts to do to make 100 of 1m pieces from a 100m cloth so we then do 99*3=297 so she needs 297 seconds
