    Jayda can cut 14 slices of dough that are 3/4 inches thick.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In order to solve this problem, we need to take the total amount of dough at 10 1/2 inches and divide it by the thickness of one slide, 3/4 inches, to find the number of slices that can be made from the total amount. You can solve this two different ways. You can either convert your fractions to decimals so that 10 1/2 becomes 10.5 and 3/4 become 0.75 and then divide 10.5/0.75 to get 14. However, you can also keep them as fractions converting 10 1/2 to 21/2 and dividing by 3/4. When we divide with fractions with keep-change-flip, or keep the first fraction-change the sign to multiplication-flip the second fraction. So, we multiply 21/2 x 4/3 and get 84/6, or 14.
