The answer is $16 \cdot 4 = 64$ inches.

#### Explanation:

If the rope is being cut into fourths, it is being cut into $4$ pieces. We know each piece is $16$ inches.

To find the length of the whole rope, we could put all $4$ pieces back together.

There are $4$ pieces and each piece is $16$ inches. So we multiply
$4 \times 16$ and we get $64$ inches.

If you wanted your answer in feet, you would divide $64$ by $12$ because there are $12$ inches in a foot. You would get about $5.3$ feet.
