I presume "cober" is a typo for "cover".

3km of pipes is 3000 meters.

3000 meters divided by each pipe length of 25 meters is 120.

Experience and prudence dictates that the oil company should acquire 126 pipes so that there will be no slow-down in the event of breakage or defects.  But that's probably not really part of the question.
