# 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? (Hint: convert data in cm.)

**Solution:**

We will be using the concept of whole numbers and unit conversion to solve the given problem.

Total length of the cloth = 40 m

On converting it to cm we get 40 × 100 cm = 4000 cm

Length of cloth required to stitch one shirt = 2 m 15 cm = 2 × 100 + 15 cm = 215 cm

Number of shirts that can be stitched in total using 40 m cloth = Total length of the cloth / Length of cloth required to stitch one shirt

⇒ 4000 / 215 ≈ 18 shirts

Thus, a total of 18 shirts can be stitched out of 40 m.

Length of the cloth remaining after stitching 18 shirts = Total length of the cloth - 18 × Length of cloth required to stitch one shirt

⇒ 4000 - 18 × 215

⇒ 130 cm = 1m 30cm

Thus, the remaining cloth is of the length 1m 30cm.
