I'd suggest division, which means 96.75/1.25 You'll get a number just shy of 80 roughly about 78 or so

To find the result we have to divide 96.75 by 1.25. It is possible to get the answer using multiplies. Its when we are using only factors, not decimals. I mean tranfrom 96.75 and 1.25 into fractions and then divide it by multiplying by inverse of 1.25. To get the result we just have to divide 96.75 by 1.25 so 96.75:1.25=77.4 We have to round the result up, because Jason have to use 77 and approx halfone tile moreso the result its 78.
