    Let the pieces= x, 3x
    Now, x+3x=12
    =4x=12
    x=12/4=3
    Therefore the shorter piece is 3m in length

    Step-by-step explanation:

    let 1st length =x

    let second length=3x

    ATQ -:

    x+3x=12

    4x=12

    x=12÷4

    x=3

    hence 1st length= x

    =3

    2nd length= 3x

    =3×3

    =9
