Estimation of tiles

Exrecise :

Now let us take a few examples for calculating the no of tiles on the wall ,which is known as “Dada “

There is a toilet wall whose width is 4 ‘ and height is 7’ .

On the wall , there is a ventilator of size : 2 ‘x 4 ‘.

The tile size is given as  6 “ X 8 “.

We need to find out no of tiles to be purchased for this job.

Solution :

  • WALL AREA : 4 ‘ X 7’ = 28 SQ FT.
  • DEDUCT FOR VENTILATOR :    2 ‘ X 4 ‘ =  ( – ) 8 SQFT.
  • NET TILE AREA : 28 – 8 =   20 SQFT.
  • AREA of one TILE : 6 “ X 8 “ = 0.5 X 0.67 =  0.335 SQ.FT.
  • NO OF TILES  = 20 / 0.335  =  59.70 NOS SAY 60 TILES.

While purchasing , you may want to add for some wastage factor.say @ 5 %

Purchase quantity : 60 + 60(5/100)  =  63 Tiles.
