Cheryl has 5 ft of ribbon. She cuts a 3 3/4-ft strip to make a hair bow. Then she cuts a 5/6- ft strip for a border on a scrapbook page. Is there enough

*Cheryl has 5 ft of ribbon. She cuts a 3 3/4-ft strip to make a hair bow. Then she cuts a 5/6- ft strip for a border on a scrapbook page. Is there enough*

Let's change everything to inches 5 ft = 60 in ( 1 foot contains 12 inches )

3 3/4 ft = 36+9 = 45 in ( 3/4 is the same as 9/12 )

5/6 ft = 10 in ( 5/6 is the same as 10/12 )

So, Cheryl uses 45 in for a hair bow

and Cheryl uses 10 in for a border 45 in + 10 in = 55 in

Cheryl had 60 in to start with, therefore **YES** there is enough ribbon
