When the fuse blows

FUSEA fuse is a device to avoid the flow of a large current in a circuit. The potential difference across the fuse is negligible. In our circuit, the maximum current allowed through the fuse is 10 A. The light bulbs marked 40 Watt, 110 V. The bulbs connected to a voltage source of 110 V. What is the maximum number of bulbs that can be placed in parallel before the fuse blows?
