From Render: Fred cuts a 12- inch piece of rope. Then he cuts a second piece of rope that is 3/2 longer than the first piece. Is the second piece shorter or longer than the first piece? Explain. Answered by Penny Nom.

I want to know how to get the right answer for this math problem, dividing a fraction in to a whole number , example 3/8 using the whole number 6? Thanks
