    To the math wizards out there. I have a room 8' x 11' and i want to buy carpet tiles which are 19.7" x 19.7". How many tiles do i need? Sorry for the math as i suck at it.

    Hello @marchy - The easiest way is to convert feet to inches.

    8 ft. = 96 inches
    96 inches divided by by 19.7 inches per tile = 4.87 tiles (Round this up to five)

    11ft. = 132 inches
    132 inches divided by 19.7 inches per tile = 6.70 tiles (Round this up to seven)

    5 tiles x 7 tiles = 35 tiles
