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

number of cuts = (n-1)
amount wasted = 1/16 * (n-1)
amount total = (3/32) n + (1/16) n - 1/16
25 16/32 = 5 n/32 -2/32
816/32 +2/32 = 5 n/32
818 = 5 n
n = 163.6 so 163
