x the length of the shorter piece 3·x the length of the longer piece x + 3·x the length of the whole board = 4·x = 76" x = 76" / 4 = 19.

Write an equation and solve it. Call the length of the shorter piece "x", in this case, the longer piece is "3x". The sum of the two is equal to 116 inches.

To find the number of pieces, divide the total length of the string by the length of each piece. In this case, the string is 25 1/2 inches long and each piece is 3/4 inch long. Dividing 25 1/2 by 3/4 will give you 34 pieces.

l = 100/p inches.

This will depend on how long you would like each piece to be. If each piece is to be 1 inch long, then 115 pieces could be cut. If each piece is 2 inches long, then 57 pieces with 0.5 inches left over If each pieces is 5 inches long, then 23 pieces and so on and so forth.
