“Get Those Thinking Caps On” 2

So I hope you are ready for another challenge:

Rectangular cards, 2 centimetres by 3 centimetres, are cut from a rectangular sheet 2 metres by 2 metres.

What is the greatest number of cards that can be cut from the sheet?

    6666 cards because 2 metres equals 200 cm which means that it is 200cm x 200cm = 40000cm2

    The little piece is 2cm x 3 cm = 6cm2

    then 40000 divide by 6 = 66666
