    11 cm Wide

    Step-by-step explanation:

    This problem is asking you to find the GCF (Greatest Common Factor) between the two numbers.

    To find the GCF, you must

    Find all the Factors of each number Identify the Common factors Choose the Greatest of those

    Factors of 44: 1, 2, 4, 11, 22, 44

    Factor of 33: 1, 3, 11, 33

    Common factors: 1 and 11

    11 is greater than 1, so the GCF is 11. 11 cm is the widest possible length the strips can be for them to still be equal.
