# How many 16 x 16 pavers for a 20 x 20 patio?

Area of 1 paver = 16*16 = 256 square units.

Area of patio = 20*20 = 400 square units.

Number of pavers required = Area of patio/Area of paver = 400/256 = 1.5625

So 2 pavers will suffice.

## Related Questions You would need 20 pavers 20 times which is 20x20=400. Over Your Head - 2006 Grading a Patio for Proper Drainage and Installing Pavers 3-20 was released on: USA: 16 May 2009 I have to assume several things. First that you mean 12 feet by 12 feet. Second that you mean 16 inches by 20 inches. Third that there is no spacing between the pavers (this last assumption is not a good ond, usually there are spaces). 12 feet x 12 = 144 inches ---- 144 in / 16 in = 9 pavers long ---- 144 in / 20 in = 7.2 pavers wide so there must be spacing use 7 pavers 7x9 = 63 total pavers. OR YOU CAN ALTERNATE THE PAVERS TO FORM A PATTERN. Use the 16 for length beside one turned to get 20 length beside it. This yields 36 inches. Play with the pattern on paper until you get one that you like. Patio is 96 inches each side. If you do not intend to get into jigsaw puzzles you will need 5 pavers per side, a total of 25. These will cover an area 100 x 100 inches let me try to understand what you mean; 20ft x 25ft area to be covered by 6"x6" pavers 20x25 is 500sq ft. 6"x6" is .25sq ft. 500/.25= 2000 111 if you can cut 10 exactly in half to make 20 half pavers There are 12 inches in a foot. Therefore the 24 inch pavers are 2 foot pavers each with an area of 2*2 = 4 square feet. The area to be paved measures 10*2 = 20 square feet. Therefore you will need 20/4 = 5 pavers. first put both in terms of the same mesurment. tiles in inches, patio in inches. patio is 240 by 360 inches. how many tiles will fit in the 240 inch measurement? 15 how many tiles will fit in the 360 inch measurement? 22.2 so you call it 23. 23X15=345 tiles you will need in a 20x30 area. This needs more information to supply a "best" answer. however.. assuming you mean 144 sq feet of patio and your stones are 16 inches x 20 inches. then accuratly you will need 66 stones. add at least 10% for cutting waste then i'd go buy 80 maybe 85.  On the Patio - 2012 Madonna 1-20 was released on: USA: 29 May 2012  In purely mathematical terms, the area of a 16"x16" paver is 16*16 sq in = 1.33...*1.33... = 1.77... sq ft So, to cover 400 sq feet you would need 400/1.77... = 225 pavers. But this assumes that all the offfcuts are used - a very unrealistic assumption in real life. It also assumes that there is no wastage - another unrealistic assumption. So, if the question is simply mathematical, the answer is 225 pavers but in real life you would be better off going for 10% more - say 245.  There are 16 16ths of a millimetre in a millimetre. so there are 20 x 16 16ths of a millimetre in 20 millimetres. 20 x 16 = 320.  1 pound = 16 ounces - therefore 20 pounds = 20 x 16 = 320 ounces  There are 16 ounces in one pound. Therefore, 20 pounds is equal to 20 x 16 = 320 ounces.   improper fraction of 2 & 16 over 20 = 56/202 16/20= [(2 * 20) + 16] /20= (40 + 16)/20= 56/20  1 gallon = 16 cups 20 gallons * 16 cups/gallon = 320 cups ###### Math and ArithmeticTV Shows and SeriesBuilding and CarpentryMetric SystemFactoring and MultiplesCooking MeasurementsRules of the RoadComputer TerminologyHuman Anatomy and Physiology Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
