To dancing fish....you have doubled the recipe by dividing the pastry batch into 16 sections, not 8.
It takes 3 sheets per batch of rolls.
There are 3 batches if using 9 sheets.
You have stacked all the sheets and cut them lengthwise in one direction which gives you 18 layers.
18 layers divided by 3 = 6 batches ....*8 sections is 48.
However by stacking, your batch is now half the size of the recipe and you should have cut it into 4ths not 8ths You should have 6 batches * 4 sections for a total 24. Cut in half for serving give you 48 rolls.
Eight rolls per batch x 3 batches gives 24 rolls.
24 rolls cut in half is 48 rolls.
So...you just have smaller rolls. Halving them again makes 96. Either way it doesn’t change the recipe itself, enjoy!
9 sheets cut in half yield 18 half sheets. You make the rolls from 3 of these half sheets at a time, which are buttered and layered, and then cut into 8. 18 / 3 * 8 = 48, which after baking are cut in half, so you end up with 96 half roll pieces (which they didn't mention).
Still trying to figure out how 9 phyllo sheets figures into 48 servings.
If you quarter them you come out with 36, if you halve those you get 72. The math just doesn't seem to be there!
