Answer: 8 dresses, with 8 yards remaining.

Explanation:
1 1/8 can be rewritten as the improper fraction 9/8 and 10 can be converted to the improper fraction 80/8. Dividing 80/8 by 9/8, the 8’s in the denominators of each fraction cancel, leaving 80 divided by 9, which goes in evenly 8 times with a remainder of 8.
