12. Jasmine was preparing a design to decorate her classroom. She needed a few colored strips of paper of length 1.8 cm each. She had a strip of colored paper of length 7.2 cm. How many pieces of the required length will she get out of this strip? 432.5/10

When a number is divided by a power of 10, to get the quotient, move the point to the left by as many places as there are zeros over 1.

Since, 432.5 is divided by 10, to get the quotient, move the point one digit to the left.

432.5/10 = 43.25

432.5/100

Since, 432.5 is divided by 100, to get the quotient, move the point two digits to the left.

432.5/100 = 4.325

432.5/1000

Since, 432.5 is divided by 1000, to get the quotient, move the point three digits to the left.

432.5/1000 = 0.4325

432.5/10000

Since, 432.5 is divided by 10000, to get the quotient, move the point four digits to the left.

432.5/10000 = 0.04325

18.5 ÷ 5 = 18.5/5

In 18.5/5, the divisor  5 can be converted to 10 by multiplying 2.

So, multiply both numerator and denominator of the fraction 18.5/5 by 2.

18.5 ÷ 5 = (18.5 x 2)/(5 x 2)

= 37/10

= 3.7

106.9 ÷ 25 = 106.9/25

In 106.9/25, the divisor  25 can be converted to 100 by multiplying 4.

So, multiply both numerator and denominator of the fraction 106.9/25 by 4.

106.9 ÷ 25 = (106.9 x 4)/(25 x 4)

= 427.6/100

= 4.276

4.2 ÷ 3 = 42/10 ÷ 3

= 42/10 x 1/3

= 14/10

= 1.4

17.6 ÷ 0.4 = 176/10 ÷ 4/10

= 176/10 x 10/4

= 176/4

1.2 ÷ 0.2 = 12/10 ÷ 2/10

= 12/10 x 10/2

= 6

1.8 ÷ 0.03 = 18/10 ÷ 3/100

= 18/10 x 100/3

= 6 x 10

= 60

Distance covered by the car = 129.92 miles

Time required to cover this distance = 3.2 hours

So, distance covered by it in 1 hour = 129.92/3.2

= 12992/320

= 40.6 miles

Number of pieces of the required length :

= 7.2/1.8

= 7.2 ÷ 1.8

= 72/10 ÷ 18/10

= 72/10 x 10/18

= 72/18

= 4
