**Nicola**, Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 5:29pmFor one washer you must include the waste and the width so..

(3/32)+(1/16)=5/32 or 0.15625

You have 25.5 inches of pipe so how many washers can be taken from it..

25.5/0.15625=163.2

Rounding to the lower number as it will only make .2 of the 164th washer means b is the answer

**Damon**, Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 5:33pmnumber of cuts = (n-1)

amount wasted = 1/16 * (n-1)

amount total = (3/32) n + (1/16) n - 1/16

so

25 16/32 = 5 n/32 -2/32

816/32 +2/32 = 5 n/32

818 = 5 n

n = 163.6 so 163
