The Fontaine sisters are seamstresses by trade. They have been commissioned to create as many 2 by 3 feet rectangular Jolly Roger flags as they can for the pirates in their village, so Loretta Fontaine has gone out to buy cloth to embroider.

Dark cloth costs **150** Neopoints a foot and comes in a roll five feet wide. It can be bought in any length (even down to the inch). She has a total of **1,260** Neopoints to spend on the cloth.

The area of the bought cloth:

Number of possible whole flags with that area of the cloth:

However, if we check the below figure, the is no way to make 7 flags from the cloth (each flag must have 2 ft x 3 ft dimension). The sisters can make maximum 6 flags from the cloth.

Therefore, the Fontaine sisters can make 6 whole Jolly Roger flags.
