The decorating committee for a dance plans to fringe the 3-inch-wide end of a streamer by making small cuts every 1/16 inch.How many cuts must be made to fringe the end?

A. 45
B. 46
C. 47
D. 48
E. 49

There will be a cut every 1/16 inch, i.e. every inch there will be 16 cuts
Therefore,for 3 inches=48 cuts
However, last cut wont be needed since it is the end portion.
So,48-1=47 cuts

Ans:C

Total length is 3 inches and it has to cut into each 1/16 pieces ,
3=x/16
x=48 blocks,
simple logic, No. of cuts = No.of blocks - 1
hence, 48-1 =47 cuts ,
IMO. ans is option 'C'
