Total length of the rope = 117^ 1/3 m = 352/3 m

Now this rope is cut into equal pieces of equal length.

Length of each piece = 7^1/3 m = 22/3 m

No of pieces = length of rope divided by length of each piece

= 352/3 ÷ 22/3

= 352/3 × 3/22

3 gets cancelled and the remaining would be 352/22

= 16

so no of pieces = 16
