The Fontaine sisters are seamstresses by trade. They have been commissioned to create as many 2 by 3 feet rectangular Jolly Roger flags as they can for the pirates in their village, so Loretta Fontaine has gone out to buy cloth to embroider.

Dark cloth costs $150 a foot and comes in a roll five feet wide. It can be bought in any length (even down to the inch). She has a total of $1,260 to spend on the cloth.

How many WHOLE Jolly Roger flags will they be able to make?
