To divide 9/10 yard of fabric into 3 equal pieces, you would divide the total length of the fabric (9/10 yard) by the number of pieces (3).

[ \frac{9/10 \text{ yard}}{3} = \frac{9}{10} \div 3 ]

To divide a fraction by a whole number, you simply divide the numerator by the number.

[ \frac{9}{10} \div 3 = \frac{9}{10} \times \frac{1}{3} ]

To multiply fractions, multiply the numerators together and the denominators together.

[ \frac{9}{10} \times \frac{1}{3} = \frac{9 \times 1}{10 \times 3} = \frac{9}{30} ]

Then simplify the fraction if possible.

[ \frac{9}{30} = \frac{3 \times 3}{10 \times 3} = \frac{3}{10} ]

So, each piece of fabric should be (\frac{3}{10}) yard long.
