We ,know that :no. of tiles = area of room /area of tiles .so,no.of tiles =36 X42 /2x2=378

The smallest size would be 15x15 feet which is 225 feet2. That is 9, 5x5 feet tiles. Or it is 25, 3x3 feet tiles.

If the pool is TEN feet long and FIVE feet wide andeach tile is ONE square foot. TEN times FIVE is FIFTY. so you would need FIFTY tiles. This is actually incorrect. If you want to SURROUND the pool, it would be 30 tile, 10+10+5+5. This would not include any flange area on the pool edge, and would only be 1 row of tile. If you are covering a deck area surrounding the pool, more deminsions would be required (such as the width of the deck on each side of the pool). 50 would be correct if you were filling in the floor of the pool.

An acre is 66 feet by 660 feet so 1,452 feet of fence would surround an acre.

It depends on how big the tiles are.

12 tiles by 18 tiles or 216 tiles total

Not exactly, no. The nearest possible answer is 6 tiles.

120 tiles because the area of the floor is 30 square feet. If you can fit four tiles into one square foot then you could fit 120 tiles in 60 square feet.
