Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Alyzia has 4/5 yard of ribbon and it take 2/7 yard of ribbon to make a bow.
Therefor, 4/5 yard of ribbon = x*(2/7 yard of ribbon) (Where, x = number of bows that can be made from 4/5 yard of ribbon
x = (4/5)/(2/7)
= (4/5)*(7/2) (multiplying by the reciprocal of the denominator)
= (7*2*2)/(5*2) (writing out all the multiples of the numbers in the numerator and the denominator and then cancelling the multiples that are common between them)
= 2.8 bows (exact number of bows). However, since the number of bows cannot practically be a fraction, we can report that the number of bows that she can make from 4/5 yard of ribbon = 2 bows.
