Let's denote the length of the complete roll of tape as x meters. According to the given information,
\frac{3}{5}\text{{ of the roll measures 2 meters. We can set up the following equation:}}
\frac{3}{5}x = 2
To find the length of the complete roll, we can solve this equation for x.
\text{{Multiplying both sides of the equation by}} \frac{5}{3}
x = \frac{2 \times 5}{3}
Simplifying:
x = \frac{10}{3}
\text{{Therefore, the length of the complete roll of tape is }}\frac{10}{3}\text{{ meters or approximately 3.33 meters.}}
