# Divide a rope of

Let the length of smaller part be 'x' cm and larger part be 'y' cm.

Length of rope = 560 cm

x + y = 560

y = 560 - x eq.

Also,

Twice the length of smaller part is equal to of the larger part 6x = y

6x = 560 - x

7x = 560

x = 80

Using this in eq.

y = 560 - 80 = 480

Therefore,

Length of smaller part = 'x' cm = 80 cm

Length of larger part = 'y' cm = 480 cm
