Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:7 pieces Step-by-step explanation:Given that,length of square pieces of fabric = 1/4 footDoris used 8 of these piece so total fabric used 8 (l²)= 1/2 foot²1 scarf area = 1/2 foot²7 scarf area = 7* 1/2 foot² = 7/2 foot²When Doris uses piece of fabric that is 1/4 by 2 foot area of one piece of that fabric = 2 * 1/4 = 2/4 = 1/2foot²So,number of pieces required to make 7 scarfs = (7/2) / (1/2) = 7 pieces
