Example 16 Bob wants to cover the floor of a room 3 m wide and 4 m long by squared tiles. If each square tile is of side 0.5 m, then find the number of tiles required to cover the floor of the room. Here, Number of tiles = (πππ‘ππ ππππ ππ ππππ‘ππππ’πππ ππππ)/(π΄πππ πππ ππ’πππ π‘πππ) Finding area of rectangular room and square tile Rectangular room Length of rectangular room = l = 4 m Breadth of rectangular room = b = 3 m Area of room = l Γ b = 4 Γ 3 = 12 sq. m = 12 π^2 Square tile Side of square tile = a = 0.5 m Area of tile = a Γ a = 0.5 Γ 0.5 = 5/10 Γ 5/10 = 25/100 sq m2 Now, Number of tiles = (πππ‘ππ ππππ ππ ππππ‘ππππ’πππ ππππ)/(π΄πππ ππ π‘ππππ π ππ’πππ) = 12/(25/100) = 12 Γ 100/25 = 12 Γ 4 = 48 β΄ 48 tiles are required to cover the room
