# Please help me to answer these questions!! Thank you in advance. 1 - A string is cut into three pieces in the ratio 5 : 4 : 2. If the longest piece of string is 87 cm longer than the shortest piece of string, find the length of the string before it is being cut. = 2- A bookstore sold fiction books, textbooks and workbooks last month in the ratio 6 : 5 : 9 respectively. If the store sold 1350 workbooks, what was the total number of fiction books and textbooks sold that month?? =

5x=87
x=17.4

4(17.4)=69.6
2(17.4)=34.8
add all the lengths together to find the amount of total string
87+69.6+34.8= 191.4
