16 inches multiplied (x) by 16 inches = How Many Square Feet?

18" x 18" = 2.25 square feet ~ Is this right?

18 inches * 18 inches = 324 square inches
16 inches * 16 inches = 256 square inches

324 square inches / 144 = 2.25 square feet
256 square inches / 144 = 1.78 square feet

How many 20 x 20 tiles are in 10.8 sq ft

How many 20 x 20 tiles are in 10.8 sq ft

20 x 20 WHAT? Inches, centimeters, millimeters?

10.8 sq ft looks suspiciously like 1 m². If the tiles are 20 x 20 cm, then a 5 x 5 array or 25 tiles.

Ultimately, you have to include grout width and figure cutting patterns when the size does not yield an integer number of tiles.

how many tiles would i need if im using a 8 inch square and the area is 436.295 sq. ft

how many tiles would i need if im using a 8 inch square and the area is 436.295 sq. ft

8" = 2/3 of a foot, so each tile's area is 2/3 x 2/3 = 4/9 ft²
9 tiles will cover 4 sq ft.

436.295 ft² x 9 tiles/4 ft² = 982 tiles

This ignores two things:
*Grout between the tiles. Instead of using the tile dimension, use the tile-to-tile spacing including grout and repeat. This will give fewer tiles.
*You will have to cut tiles to fit at the edges and you will have some scrap that is too small to fit anything. Allow at least 10% more.

See post #9 regarding scrap and grout, but 16" = 1.25'

Roughly 350 ft²/(1.25 ft)² = 224 tiles

Ignoring the grout between tiles, 12" = 1 ft
so 12" x 12" tile is 1 sq ft and you need 1740 tiles.

18" x 18" tile is 1.5 ft x 1.5 ft = 2.25 sq ft. You need 734.

how many square yards is 13ft2inches x 15ft8inches

(13 + 2/12)*(15 + 8/12) = 206.277 ft²
1 yd² = 9 ft², so 22.92 yd²

How many 9 x 12 tiles will cover 70 square feet?

A tile is 0.75 ft x 1 ft = 0.75 ft²

70 ft² x 1 tile/0.75 ft² = 94 tiles.
This ignores any scrap from cutting to fit, so allow a few extra (+10%?)

Do you mean 260 sq. ft.?

Each plank is 144 in² or 1 ft². You need 260 planks. This ignores any scrap from cutting to fit at the edges. You should probably allow 10% scrap allowance for that, but it depends on room dimensions.

350 square feet would be 350 multiplied by 12 multiplied by 12 = 50400 inches. So 50400 inches (350 square feet) divided by 256 inches (16 X 16 inch tile) = * 196.875 tile

2" is how thick the asphalt is layed.

20' x 20' = 400 square feet. 400 x \$4 = \$1600.

18 inches * 18 inches = 324 square inches
16 inches * 16 inches = 256 square inches

324 square inches / 144 = 2.25 square feet
256 square inches / 144 = 1.78 square feet

If we need to order 330 sq ft and it comes in a 20x20 tile.

330 ft²/400 in² x 144 in²/ft² = 119 tiles
Depending on dimensions of area, you may need to cut tiles to fit and have some scrap. You should plan at least 5-10% extra.

12" = 1' Express in feet, 18" = 1.5 ft

512 ft²/(1.5' x 1.5') = 228 tiles

For 20", 185 tiles. Evaluate same way, round a fraction up

If they have to be cut at edges to fit, plan for a 10-15% scrap allowance.
