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
