A new roll of insulated electrical wire has 200 feet of wire. Mr. Saunders needs pieces that are \(6\frac{1}{4}\) feet long. How many full pieces of this length can he cut from the roll?


Divide the number of feet of wire in the roll (200) by the size of the pieces he wants (\(6\frac{1}{4}\) feet).

\(200 \div 6\frac{1}{4}=200 \div \frac{25}{4}=200 \times \frac{4}{25}=8 \times 4=32\)
