    Answer: There are 4 walking sticks that she made from the branch.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Since we have given that

    Length of branch = 8\dfrac{7}{8}=\dfrac{71}{8}\ feet

    Length discarded of the branch = \dfrac{1}{8}\ foot

    Remaining length of branch is given by

    \dfrac{71}{8}-\dfrac{1}{8}\\\\=\dfrac{71-1}{8}\\\\=\dfrac{70}{8}

    Length of stick = 2\dfrac{3}{16}\ feet=\dfrac{35}{16}\ feet

    So, Number of walking sticks would be

    \dfrac{70}{8}\div \dfrac{35}{16}\\\\=\dfrac{70}{8}\times \dfrac{16}{35}\\\\=2\times 2\\\\=4

    Hence, there are 4 walking sticks that she made from the branch.
