    How many 20cm ties will fit in a row that makes up 3m?

    How many rows of 20cm tiles can you fit if you are able to have as many rows as fits in 2m?

    How many tiles in total is that?

    That's pretty much right, though to be precise, it's actually 15 tiles in a row, and 10 rows. Well done
