A long time ago, there were some people who posted various math problems they were working on (usually word problems that had a story), and several members were not only able to solve the problems but also explain exactly how they got their answer.

I am NOT a math person at all, but I LOVED watching people strut their brainy stuff and show us all how it's done...

So although I don't have an interesting story to tell, I do have a math problem that I'm hoping all our number-crunchers out there can demystify and solve.

I am currently working on a sewing pattern that will require approximately 1 2/3 yards of 45" fabric.

However, I'm interested in using a fabric that's 60" wide instead.

So... How much fabric will I need?

**The basic problem is: 1 2/3 yards (length) of 45-inch fabric (width) will be equal to how many yards (what length) of fabric that is 60 inches wide?**

I sat down and tried to write out the conversion myself and all I came up with... was a whole lot of frustration! I couldn't even find that particular conversion on a chart when I tried Googling it (and I tried looking at 3 charts, but maybe I just missed it).

However, what I'd really like to do is learn how to write out and solve a problem like this for myself!

Any takers? This isn't a contest , so everyone is welcome to give it a go, no matter how many times we might see the same answer and methods used (believe me, it will take that many repetitions for me to learn how to do it!)

If at all possible, please show your work so we can see how you came up with the answer and possibly learn your method on our own.

I'm really looking forward to seeing who (if anyone? ) gives it a go.

And, I also hope that your day "adds up" to being very blessed. <3

Thanks in advance!
