Yes, Jeanie can cut the piece of ribbon into the two smaller pieces. Since the total length of the ribbon is 3/4 yard, which is equivalent to 6/8 yard, it is longer than the combined length needed for the two smaller pieces (3/8 yard + 1/2 yard = 5/8 yard). Therefore, Jeanie has enough ribbon to cut both the 3/8 yard piece and the 1/2 yard piece without running out of ribbon.
