26.6 wafers

Work Step by Step

This question is basically a unit conversion question. We are given a substance measuring 2 meters, and asked how many 75 mm wafers can be created from it. First, we have to convert mm to meters. Since there are 1000 mm in a meter, each wafer is .075 m wide. Now, we simply divide the whole (2 m) by the part (.075 m) and we get 26.6 wafers from each whole.
