Ginny has a piece of fabric 20 yards long. How many cuts will she make if she cuts the fabric into sections that are 2 yards long?

If you cut the fabric once, you end up with 2 parts.
If you cut the fabric two times, you end up with 3 parts. 

If you want sections that are 2 yards long, you need to end up with
20yards/2yards = 10 parts.
 

If you cut the fabric nine times, you end up with 10 parts of 2 yards each.

With one cut, we get the fabric split in two.

With two cuts, we get the fabric split in three, and so on.

\(\frac{20}{2}=10\) so there are 10 pieces of fabric, which result in \(10-1=9\) cuts.

 

You are very welcome!
