The area of a bathroom floor measures 2 yards by 3 yards and each custom tile that makes up the flooring is 1 1/2 square feet. How many tiles are needed to cover the floor?
The dimensions of the bathroom floor is given as 2 yards by 3 yards. Then The area of the bathroom floor in question = (2 * 3) square yards = 6 square yards We already know that 1 square yard = 9 square feet So The area of the bathroom floor in question = (6 * 9) square feet = 54 square feet Area covered by each custom tiles = 11/2 square feet Then Number of tiles required to cover the bathroom floor = 54/(11/2) = (54 * 2)/11 = 108/11 = 9.81 So the number of tiles required to cover the bathroom flooring is 10. Since fraction of tiles cannot be bought, so 10 tiles are required.
