# If you have a 10 x 12 room how many 24 x 24 ceiling tiles would you need?

Your question is confusing because you are using two different scales. If your room is 10 ft x 12 ft and the tiles are 2 ft x 2 ft, the answer is 30 tiles.

### What would be the width of a a ceiling covered by 49 square tiles when the tiles are 4 square feet?

Type your answer here... You first need to make an assumption
that both the tiles are square and the ceiling is square, otherwise
there are any number of possible answers.
Each tile would therefore measure 2 ft x 2 ft. The ceiling would
be 7 tiles x 7 tiles. The width of the ceiling would be 7 tiles x 2
feet = 14 feet.

### How many 2x4 ceiling tiles do you need in a 15x30 room?

57-60 ceiling tiles measuring 2'x4 would cover a 15'x30'
ceiling.
For the least amount of trimming, place 4 tiles at 4' (trimming
1') for a total of 15'. For the 30' side, it would take 15 tiles at
2' each for a total of 30'. 4 tiles wide x 15 tiles long = a total
of 60 tiles.
To use the minimum number of tiles, one could run the tiles the
opposite direction, although this would involve more trimming.
In this case, place 8 tiles at 4' (trimming 2' total) for a
total of 30'. For the 15' side, place 8 tiles at 2' (trimming 1'
total) for a total of 15'. If the cuts were precise, the end tiles
(cut in half) could each be figured as 1/2, for a total of 57
pieces with no waste/scrap.
A total of 64 tiles would be an ample amount to cover any
miscuts, in most situations.
