On a given occasion, I wish to create different thicknesses of a
material, ranging
say, for example, from 1 cm to 25 cm, in increments of 1 cm.

How can I, using Mathematica, determine the minimum number
of sheets of material I need?
The material comes in thicknesses of 1, 2, 3, 4, & 7 cm.

Thank you,
John C. Erb
