How many 20x20 square inch tiles dose it take to cover 56 square feet?
The concept is confusing but the math is pretty simple...
- Tiles are sold by the square foot not by the tile..
- Measure the room & round up to the next foot, ie.. 11' 6" just write it down as 12'
- If the room has offsets or halls, just remember to treat it like another room & do the length X width of each area. Then add them all up.
- Box will tell you how many sq feet is in a box, so you are paying by the foot, but buying by the box........
- Each 16X16 tile is 1.778 sq feet
- 16X16 tile will likely be packaged in a box with 9-11 pieces per box..
- Usually about 14- 18 sq feet per box depending on the makers preferences...
- By way of example if your room is 12X12 that's 144 sq feet,
- Divide the sq feet by how many sq feet in the box & you know how many boxes..
- Add about 7-10% to make sure you have enough....
- THE FORMULA IS : area divided by sq ft per tile ie 225 sq feet of 18X18 tiles would take 10 tiles....
- 12X12 is DUH 1 sq foot
- 13X13 is 1.174
- 18X18 tiles are 2.25 sq ft per tile
- 20"x20" tiles are 2.778 per tile
- 24X24 tiles are 4 sq ft per tile
Soooo once you know the sq feet you need, add a little for waste & breakage & ooops cuts & you will have enough..
The fact that a good tile setter starts in the middle of the room & works out also means you may have a fair bit of cutting one all the walls but a centered look is much better and likely allows you to use the pieces up.

To find the area of a room, multiply the length times the width. 20 X 20 equals 400 sq ft.
Is this your homework? Each tile is 400 square inches. That's 20 x 20 = 400 In a square foot there are 144 square inches. That's 12 x 12 = 144 In the house there are 197568 square inches. That's 1372 x 144 = 197568 So how many tiles? Divide the house area in sq inches by tiles in sq inc…hes. So number of tiles is 493.92 tiles. That's 197568 / 400 = 493.92 Of course you can't buy 0.92 tiles, so call it 494 tiles. In reality, there is a lot of wastage. No room fits tiles exactly so you have to cut them. Add on about 10% or 50 tiles for wastage. And remember that the old fashioned Imperial system (inches, feet, yards, chains, furlongs, miles, leagues) is only used in two countries in the universe. The UK and the USA. Everybody else uses metres. (MORE)
Answer: 184 assuming no waste... There will be waste and broken tiles. Get an extra case. Math: 13in X 13in = 169 Square inches 169 Square inches / 144 Square inches per square foot = 1.17 square foot per tile 215 square feet / 1.17 square feet = 184 tiles
you must be buying FLOR tiles like me - I'm looking for the same answer! But using their calculator it looks like about 26 square feet.
One 16 X 16 inch tile is approximately 1.78 Sq. Ft. So the answeris 85 tiles. Get extra for breakage.
40 square feet = 40*12*12 square inches = 5760 sq inches. No of 16*16 tiles = 5760/(16*16) = 22.5. So 23 tiles will do.. BUT if this is a practical question rather than a maths question, you will also need to allow for wastage.
If you had absolutely no waste you would need 864 tiles. Since tile as large as 20" x 20" generally have a large amount of waste, make sure you add 10% into this number. With that you would need 950 tiles to complete your job.
i thinking the room is 17' 6" x 18' to equal 315 sqft but you still only need 315 ....12" x 12" tile Plus you need to add waste so you need to make the size 18x18 which is 324 sf. of 12x12 tiles
1070 square feet is 154080 square inches. (1 square foot is 12x12 or 144 square inches.) a 20x20 inch tile is 400 square inches. So the question could be restated as "how many 400 square inch tiles does it take to cover 154080 square inches?" 154080 / 400 = 385.2
The number of 13 inch tiles needed will depend on the actual dimensions of the floor rather than the square footage. If the room is square, 169 tiles, with 1/16 inch or larger grouted seams, will completely cover it. If the floor is rectangular, additional tiles will be needed, the exact number depe…nding on how many tiles must be cut. As a general rule, approximately 10 percent extra is usually sufficient to cover waste from cutting and accidental breakage. (MORE)
You can fit nine 4x4 tiles in one squre foot (3 tiles wide by 3 tiles long). 56 square feet times 9 = 504. Add about 10% for cutting a/o waste (50 tiles) and you should buy around 550 tiles to complete the job. Good luck.
576 feet x 12 inches in a foot = 6912 inches 6912 inches/18 inches per tile = 384 tiles
There are 4 6X6 tiles per sq foot. So looks like 4 tiles X 5 Feet=20 tiles.
20X20" tiles are 1.67'X1.67' giving a total sq ft per tile of 2.8 s/f 100 tiles would cover 280 sq feet so looks like 97 tiles gets you to 272. we always recommend about 5-7% overage to allow for a broken tile or a bad cut.
You'll need a total of 192 16-inch tiles and have 3/4 of one tileleft over.
240 sq ft = 240x12x12 = 34560 sq inches Each tikle is 18 x 18 = 324 sq inches Thus you need 34560/324 = 107 tiles
Well if 12x12 is one square foot and you have 44 you need to cover figure 10% for breakage (5 tiles) it looks like 50 tiles will do ya
Nine you retard! Twelve by twelve inches is one square foot you GENIUS! P.S. If you are not setting them straight by staright, you would want to leave about inch of plaster in between each tile so they wont break easy and can expand and shrink with the cold weather.
550 sq feet = 550*12*12 = 79200 sq inches. 20"x20" = 400 sq inches. So number of tiles required = 79200/400 = 198 That is the mathematical answer. It assumes that the 550 square feet shape is such that every offcut can be reused (not so easy if it is 550 sq feet in a circular shape!), that y…ou cut every tile perfectly, there are no breakages, etc. In real life, depending on your level of skill, get at least 5% more tiles.

9,216 tiles, this is how I worked it out 64 sq feet = 589,824 sq inches 8" x 8" tile = 64 sq inches 589,824 divided by 64 = 9,216 ======= The first contributor's arithmetic and writing are both impeccable. Unfortunately, instead of an area of "64 square feet", he used a 64-foot squar…e. 64 square feet = (64 x 144) = 9,216 square inches.

500 sq feet = 500*12*12 = 72000 sq inches Each tile is 20*20 = 400 sq inches So, number of tiles required = 72000/400 = 180 This assumes that either the shape is such that only whole tiles are required or that all offcuts are used.
How many 20X20 tiles If this is homework the answer looks like this . 20X20= (sq inches per tile) Â¨ Sq Inches per tile divided by 144 = (sq feet per tile) (About 2.8 sq ft per tile) but do your own math, that's what a cell phone calculator is for, . divide 400 by sq feet per tile…= your # of tiles needed If this is the real world there are grout lines, miscuts & broken tile & undersized tiles to consider, ask the guy at home depot to figure it.. I would expect. 140-160 tiles on your cart at check out (MORE)
20" = 2.78 square feet. Now divide the area of the tiles into the area of the room. 140/2.78 = 51 tiles
Your question needs a better understanding . a "square foot" is any shape that calculates to 144 sq inches . a "Foot Square" would be a specific shape 12"x12" tile which also equals 144 sq inches . since a 12" X 8" tile is really a Rectangle using the word "square" in the question is confusing. … I think you want to know a math problem answer, so here is the formula . 12" X8"= X (hint more than 90 less than 100) . 144 sq inches in a sq foot soooo you can get there two ways...here is the easy way . We know how many sq feet to cover=200 so when you figure out the "X" above the formula is . 200 divided by X= # of tiles (not in the real world but in math class this works. In the real world it depends on waste, breakage & the # of tiles in a carton) (MORE)
Assuming they are 20 by 20 inches, then the area of a tile is 400 feet 2 /144. 200 feet 2 /(400 feet 2 /144) = 72
Area of each tile = 20*20 sq inches = 400 sq inches. Area to be covered = 1744 sq ft = 1744*144 = 251136 sq inches. So minimum number of tiles required = 251136/400 = 627.8 is 628 tiles. That is the mathematical answer which assumes that almost all the offcuts can be used. If the area to be covere…d is odd shaped there will be a lot of offcuts that cannot be used unless you want a mosaic effect! (MORE)
Simply divide the total area (384 sq ft) by the tile area (18 sq ft) 384 / 18 = 21.333 tiles Assuming that you can only use a whole, and not .333 of a tile, you round up to the nearest tile. 21.333 tiles --> 22 tiles
443 square feet = 443*12*12 = 63792 sq inches Each tile = 8*8 = 64 sq inches So minimum number of tiles required = 63792/64 = 996.75 or 997. However, that assumes that almost all the offcuts can be used. In real life it would be sensible to have more tiles to allow for breakages and wastage.
a 12 x 2 inch square tile is 1 foot by foot = 1 sq ft you need 252 tiles
20 inches = 20/12 ft = 1.67ft 6 inches = 6/12 ft = 0.5ft 1.67X0.5 ft = 0.83 sq ft. Therefore 900sq ft / 0.83 sq ft = 1080 tiles However the above answer is how much is needed without waste. I.e. no partial tiles for the perimeter.
400 square feet = 400 x 144 = 57600 square inches Number of 60 x 60 square inch in 57600 is 57600/3600 = 576/36 = 16
It will require a minimum of 1,462 tiles. That number will cover about 1,850.34 square feet.
Area of each tile = 6 ft * 6 ft = 36 square ft Area to be covered = 325 Number of tiles required = 325/36 = 9.03 = 10 That is the mathematical answer. In real life the number of tile required will depend on how "well-behaved" the shape is, what proportion of offcuts can be used.
First, find the square footage of a 16" x 24" tile. 16 x 24 = 384 square inches. There are 144 square inches in a square foot (12" x 12" = 144). So divide 324 by 144 to get the square feet per tile. 324 / 144 = 2.67 sq ft per tile. You have 275 square feet, using tiles that are 2.67 sq ft each. 275… / 2.67 = 103 tiles. Generally, you will want to add from 5% to 10% for waste, depending on your layout (is it one big room, or several smaller rooms with lots of cutting?) (are you doing a checkerboard pattern, running bond (brick), or diagonal?) and your skill level. If in doubt, add 10% to be safe. 103 tiles + 10% --- that's 103 x 1.1 = 110.3 tiles. (MORE)
Area of each tile = 13x13 sq inches = 1.1736111... sq feet. So number of tiles required = 200/1.1736111... = 170.4 tiles. So, the mathematical answer is that you will require a minimum of 171 tiles. Im real life, however, you should have an extra 5% to allow for breakages, dealing with awkward co…rners or curves, etc. (MORE)
370 sq feet = 370*144 = 53280 sq inches. Area of each tile = 13*13 = 169 sq inches. So number of tiles required = 53280/169 = 315.3, ie 316 tiles. That is the mathematical answer and assumes that the area to be covered is well behaved and tha tyou can use up almost all the offcuts. In real life, y…ou should allow 5% extra tiles for breakages and offcuts: more if you are not an expert. (MORE)
12" x 12" = 1 square foot. 400 of them are required in order to cover 400 square feet.
36" = 3 ft 36" x 36" = (3 ft) x (3 ft) = 9 square feet per tile 1000 / 9 = 111 1 / 9 tiles. Either buy 112 of them, or else buy 111 and plan your work carefully so that the one bare square foot winds up under the refrigerator or the bed.
That depends on the shape of the 280 sq. ft. area. For example, if it is a rectangle 1 foot by 280 feet, you couldn't fit a single tile into it (I assume you mean square tiles that are 20 inches on each side) because 20 inches is more than 1 foot. But assuming the area is a rectangle who sides are a… multiple of 20 inches (or at least one is), we can get a pretty good estimate by converting to square inches. A sq. ft. is 12 x 12 or 144 sq. in. So 280 sq. ft. = 280 x 144 = 40,320 sq. in. Now the area of one tile is 400 sq. in. Dividing 40,320 by 400, we get 100.8. So with a suitable shaped area, we could cover most of it with 100 tiles, but there would be 320 sq. in. left over. 101 tiles would more than cover that much area, but again, to cover a given area of 280 sq. ft. with 101 tiles, the area must have a suitable shape.

Area of each tile = 20 in x 20 in = 400 sq in = 25/9 sq ft. Area to be covered = 120 sq ft. So minimum number of tiles required = 120/ (25/9) = 43.2 ie 44 tiles.. That is the mathematical answer.

It is not possible to answer the question because the area to be covered is not specified. If the area to by covered is 72 feet x 0.25 inches, so that its area is 216 sq inches, then 1 tile should be sufficient.

1200 sq ft = 1200*144 = 172800 sq inches. Each tile = 20*20 = 400 sq inches So minimum number of tiles required = 432. However, this assumes that the shape to be tiled is well behaved and that there is no wastage.
Area to be covered = 25 sq ft = 25*12*12 sq inches = 2600 sq inches. So minimum number of tiles required = 3600/(16*16) = 14.06 is 15 tiles. However, that assumes that there is almost no wastage - a very unlikely assumption.
A A 12x12 sq feet tile covers 144 sq feet. So to cover 1200 sq feetyou will need 1200/144 = 8.3 or 9 tiles.
20 inches = 1.666 feet 1.66x 1.666 = 2.777 sq feet 78/2.777 = 28 tiles
Theoretically, 31 tiles. 36 sq ft = 36 x 144 sq in = 5184 sq in 13 x 13 = 169 sq in 5184/169 = 30.67, so you'd need 30 tiles plus one to cut up for the extra bits. In practice this would be a silly and overly difficult amount of cutting up. 36 sq ft could be 3 ft by 12 ft, or 36 in by 144 in.To …cover the side of length 36 inches you'd need 3 tiles (36/13 = 2.77, so 2 full tiles and one to cut). Similarly you'd need 12 tiles along the other edge. 12 x 3 = 36 tiles. This assumes there are no spaces (e.g. for grouting) between the tiles, and that you don't spoil any. (MORE)
