Tiles

The pupils of the building school have to calculate how many roof tiles they will need to cover the roof of the house in the shape of two rectangles measuring 10 x 7.2 m. 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=0.22 0.32=62544=0.0704 m2  q=2%=1+1002=1.02  n=q S1S=1.02 0.0704144=2087
