One roof tile covers a rectangular area of 22 cmx32 cm. How many tiles will they need if they have to count on 2% waste and overlap?

Correct answer:

n =  2087

Step-by-step explanation:

a=10 m b=7.2 m m=2  S=m a b=2 10 7.2=144 m2  x=22 cm m=22:100  m=0.22 m y=32 cm m=32:100  m=0.32 m  S1=x y=5011 258=50 2511 8=125088=62544=0.0704 m2  q=100%+2%=1+1002=1.02  n=q S1S=1.02 0.0704144=2087
