A 4 inch by 4 inch tile is 16 square inches. 60 square feet is 8640 square inches. Dividing the one by the other shows us that 540 tiles 4 inches on a side will cover an area of 60 square feet.

Assuming the tiles are 11.75 inches * 11.75 inches, the area of each tile is 138.0625 sq inches. Area to be covered = 60 sq feet = 60*144 = 8640 sq inches. So, minimum number of tiles required = 62.58 = 63 tiles. That is the mathematical answer. However, it assumes that almost all the offcuts are used, that there is virtually no wastage. In real life that will not be the case, particularly if the 60 square feet shape is ill formed - a random shape with lots of narrow bits sticking out, for example.

sqrt(8640) = 92.95 (to 2 dp)

8640 in

since one inch = 12 feet and this is a square dimension multiply by 12 x 12 = 144 to get area in square feet. 60 x 144 = 8640 square feet

There are 1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot. Therefore, 5 cubic feet would be equivalent to 8640 cubic inches.

since one inch = 12 feet and this is a square dimension multiply by 12 x 12 = 144 to get area in square feet. 60 x 144 = 8640 square feet

It is: 4320

The prime numbers (factors) of 8640 are: 2,3,5

60*36*4 = 8640 in3 (cubic inches) = 5 ft3 (cubic feet)

There are 60 seconds in one minute. Therefore, 8640 minutes is equal to 8640 x 60 = 518400 seconds.

It is the same as 12 x 30 * 30 which is 8640.
