| **What is the largest number of rectangular plates 8 cm long and 6 cm wide will be obtained if they are cut from a sheet of tin, the length of which is 24 cm and the width is 22 cm.**

To complete this task, we need to find the area of a sheet of tin. We know that its length and width are 24 and 22 centimeters. To find the area of a rectangle, you need to multiply its length and width:

24 * 22 = 528 cm ^ 2.

Now let’s find the area of one plate in a similar way:

8 * 6 = 48 cm ^ 2.

To find out how many plates will fit on one sheet of tin, you need to find out how many such plates can fit on this sheet at most. To do this, we divide:

528: 48 = 11 records.
