I need help finding the answer. I am confused and don't know how to answer it.

The answer would be 32 pieces.

Let's take one yard. How many 1/2 yard pieces can you get from one yard?

The answer is 2. So, all you would have to do is multiply 2 by 16, and you would be able to have 32 half yard pieces from that 16 yards long rope.

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
