### How to calculate number of tiles required for flooring?

Given dimension :-

 Tile calculation

For A1 room = 18’×16′ =288 sqft

For A2 room = 16’×12′ = 192 sqft

For A3 room = 16′ ×12′ = 192 sqft

For A4 room = 18′ × 16′ = 288 sqft

Size of one tile= 24”×24” = 4 sqft

24″ = 2 feet

Calculation :-

Total area of all room = 288 +192 +192 +288

Total area = 960 sqft

Total area of 1 tile = 4 sqft

Number of tile require = total area of room/ area of one tile

Number of tile = 960 /4 = 240

Lat us consider 5% wastage of tile

Wastage tile = 240×5/100 =12

Hence total tiles require for flooring sites of the house having for  4 room

Number of tiles =240+12 =252 Ans.
