A quilter is making a quilt that will be 48 inches wide. The border will be 2 inches at the end. Each quilt block is 4 inches wide. How many quilt blocks does the quilter need across the width of the quilt?


Answer:

If the width of the quilt has a two inch boarder at each end:

Width inside borders = 48 inches - 2 inch border on left - 2 inch border on right

= 48 - 2 - 2

= 44 inches


Number of quilt blocks required across width:

= (44 inch width inside border) / (4 inches per quilt block)

= 11 quilt blocks


The final answer is: 11 quilt blocks

(If there is no border on either side, 12 quilt blocks will be required.)
