How many pieces each 25 inch long can be cut from a wire that is 2 inches long?

None - the original wire is not long enough to make one piece.
Maybe you meant to say that the pieces are .25 inches each, and the decimal
point got lost from the question. If that's what happened, then each piece is
to be 1/8 inch long, and you can get 16 of them from 2 inches of wire.
