How much material was required for each dresses of the same size if it took 5 1/2 yards for both ?

2.75 yards

Step-by-step explanation:

If it took both (meaning 2) dresses a certain amount, half of that amount is one dress. So, we need to divide 5 1/2 by 2

*1/2 of 1 = 0.5

0.5 + 5 = 5.5

5.5 / 2 = 2.75

(2.75 also equals 2 3/4)
