What kind of tiles? For the floor or walls also? Simplest example. 12x12 floor tiles. 10x12 room. One length times one width. 10x12=120 12x20 room, 240 tiles. 6x6 tiles there are 4 tiles in each square foot of floor space 10x12x4=480 Whatever you are doing, one length times one width gives you the square footage. Then figure how much each tile covers and multiply.
