I have 50-inch long bedsheet, I need to create 50 handkerchiefs each size of 1-inch. I take one minute to cut 1-inch handkerchief.
So how long will it take to cut 50 handkerchiefs?
Length of bed sheet=50 inch
No of Handkerchiefs=50/1=50nos...................(1 inch size)
No of cuttings=50-1=49
Time for one cutting=1 minute
Time for 49 cuttings=49*1=49 minutes
Ans is 49 minutes
