    Answer: 15 bows

    Step-by-step explanation:

    A roll of ribbon has 8 3/4 feet of ribbon

    to make a bow, you use 1 3/4 feet of ribbon

    first convert to decimal

    = 8 3/4 = 8.75

    =1 3/4 = 1.75

    to get the number of bows to make from  3 rolls of ribbon,

    = if one bow = 1.75 ribbon

    and one roll of ribbon has 8.75 feet of ribbon

    then 3 rolls will have 3* 8.75 = 26.25 feet

    therefore 26.65 feet of ribbon will make

    =26.65/1.7=15

    =15 bows
