# Saili plants 4 saplings, in a row, in her garden. The distance between two adjacent saplings is 3/4 m. Find the distance between the first and the last sapling

**Solution:**

Total number of saplings = 4

Distance between two adjacent saplings = 3/4 m

Distance between the first and the last sapling = 3 × 3/4 m = 9/4 m

By converting an improper fraction into a mixed fraction, we get

9/4 m = 2(1/4) m

Thus, the distance between the first and last sapling is 2(1/4) m.
