Karan wants to cover the floor of his room with lavish tiles. His room is square in shape with sides of 6 m. The shopkeeper told him that the area of each tile is 0.5 m2. Can you tell how many tiles Karan should buy?
Given a square room of side = 6 m.
Area of each tile = 0.5 m2
We know that, area of a square = Side × Side
∴ Area of a square room
= 6 × 6 = 36 m2.
So, number of tiles required
= Area of roomArea of a single tile
= 360.5 = 72
Hence, Karan should buy 72 tiles to cover the floor of his room.
