# How many tiles a rectangle floor need with 10 feet long and 14 feet wide if the tile covers 2 square feet?

**Figuring how many tiles in an area**

Pretty straight forward math homework...

Grab your cell phone calculator & here we go

area is figures as Length X Width (LXW)

10 X 14=????

each tile is 2 sq feet

so divide your total sq feet (area) by 2! (sq FT) should come up with an answer more than 65 less than 80

### How do you work out how many tiles you need to tile a room?

What kind of tiles? For the floor or walls also? Simplest example. 12x12 floor tiles. 10x12 room. One length times one width. 10x12=120 12x20 room, 240 tiles. 6x6 tiles there are 4 tiles in each square foot of floor space 10x12x4=480 Whatever you are doing, one length times one width gives you the square footage. Then figure how much each tile covers and multiply.
