**(9)** **To stitch a shirt, 2 m 15 cm cloth is needed. Out of 40 m cloth, how many shirts can be stitched and how much cloth will remain?**

Given:

1 Shirt can be stitched with=> 2m 15 cm cloth

we know that,

1 m= 100 cm

1 cm = 1/100 m

1 cm =0.01 m

15 cm = 0.15 m

2m 15cm can also be written as ==> 2.15 meter

Hence 1 shirt get stitched with==> 2.15 m

Solution

We have total of 40 meter cloth

So number of shirt that can be stitched with 40 meter cloth is ==> 40/2.15 ==> 18.6**Hence total of 18 shirts get stitched**
