Try 48 which allows for a 5mm gap between each board for expansion:

Are you having the joints random or in a line, if you chop each plank down to 1.5m then you will need 50 maybe 48 with a gap between each plank

Probably won't be inline more staggered so so a whole length then a 1.2m board.next
I'd think diy shops would take anu unopened packs back, so best to get extra, probably some good videos on youtube showing you some tricks too!
It would be easier to get 3m decking boards - they are readily available.

Just remember each joint will need a joist underneath for support
When you go in shop and tell them dimensions they Normally advice how much you would need.
