Answers:

1. You cut the rope 8 times only. You get 2 pieces on the 8th cut - the 8th
and the 9th pieces. (9 times is wrong.)

2. The 9-meter rope will produce 6 pieces having a length of 1-1/2 meters
each. Roll the rope into 6 loops. Hold the rope lightly and adjust the loops
slowly to make them the same size. (www.katig.com)
