A 1 m piece of ribbon is cut into equal pieces and a piece measuring 4 cm remains.
What might the lengths of the equal parts be?
In how many different ways can the ribbon be cut into equal pieces?

    Hi Mr Carr

    If you have half 96cm it would be 48cm then half that again it would be 24cm and then half it again it would be 12cm. Half 12cm would be 6cm then half again it would be 3cm. 3cm halfed is 1.5cm. 1.5cm is the smallest you can get and it is equal.
