    Answer:

    She cuts the board in two pieces

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Givens

    • The board is 5/6 yards long.
    • She cuts it into pieces that are 5/12 yard long.

    To know how many pieces she cuts, we need to find how many pieces of 5/12 long fit into a board 5/6 yards long.

    We just need to divide,

    \frac{5}{6} \div \frac{5}{12} = \frac{5}{6} \times  \frac{12}{5}=2

    Therefore, she cuts the board in two pieces, where each piece is 5/12 yard long.

    so a 5/6 yards long board needs 5/12 yards cut out evenly, 5/6 = 10/12, there can only be 2 peices cut
