To stitch a shirt, $2\ m\ 15\ cm$ cloth is needed. 

To do:

We have to find the number of shirts that can be stitched and the cloth that will remain.


Cloth required to stitch one shirt$=2m\ 15\ cm$


$=215\ cm$

Total cloth available$=40\ m$

$=40\times100\ cm$

$=4000\ cm$

Number of shirts that can be stitched$=4000\div215$

$=18(quotient)+130( remainder)$

Therefore, $18$ shirts can be stitched from $40\ m$ cloth and 130 cm cloth will be left.
