Assume they are 9 inch x 6 inch pavers. The area of each paver is 9*6/144 = 3/8 sq feet Area to be covered = 144 square feet So number of pavers required = 144/ (3/8) = 384 That is the minimum number required if the area to be covered is "well behaved". If the area is not an exact number of pavers long/wide, of if there are curves you will have to cut some pavers and, unless all the offcuts can be used, you will require more than 384.

ANSWER 16 x 16 inch = 1.78 sq.feet 120 / 1.78 = 67.42 so you need to have 68 pavers The plot is 144 inches wide. 144/16=9 pavers wide. The short dimension is 120 inches which would require 8 pavers with the final row of pavers cut to fit. Thus in a 9 X 8 paver grid you'd need 68 pavers, but 4 of those pavers would have to be cut in half for the final row.

18" x 18" = 1.5ft x 1.5 ft = 2.25 sq ft 12 ft x 12 ft = 144 sq ft So number of paver required = 144/2.25 = 64

6 If we assume that the pavers are 6 inches by 9 inches, then its area is 6*9 = 54 square inches. 54 sq.in. = 54/144 = 0.375 square feet each. 36 sq.ft / 0.375 sq.ft. = 96 pavers (nett). In practice you may need a few extra to allow for breakages, out-of- squareness, etc.

We're assuming the dimensions of the pavers are given in inches,and of the patio are given in feet.The area of the patio is: (11 x 11 x 144) square inchesThe area allowed for each paver is (17 x 17) square inches.The number required is: (11 x 11 x 144) / (17 x 17) = 60.29You need 61 of them, but part of the last one won't be used.

Well, one 12 ft * 12 ft paver will cover 144 sq feet so one will be enough. On the other hand, if they were 12 centimetres by 12 centimetres then you would need 133781 pavers.

Area of each paver = 16*16 sq inches = 16*16/144 sq ft = 1.77... sq ft. So number of pavers requires = 288/1.77... = 162. However, that is conditional on all offcuts being used.
