    [SOLVED] Area problems

    Q. How many 10cm by 10cm tiles would be needed to cover an area 3.25m by 2.17m?
    The answer is 726, but closest i've ever gotten to the answer was from 32.5\times21.7=705.25

    Thanks

    hello
    \frac{3.25 \times 2.17}{0.1\times0.1} = 705.25(m^{2})

    Can you buy a fraction of a tile, or must you buy whole tiles?
