Two pavers of 16 ft x 16 ft will be sufficient.

Area of 1 paver = 16*16 = 256 square units. Area of patio = 20*20 = 400 square units. Number of pavers required = Area of patio/Area of paver = 400/256 = 1.5625 So 2 pavers will suffice.

81 pavers (each 16 inches square) would be needed. 12 foot x 12 foot = 144 inches x 144 inches = 20,736 in2 16 inches x 16 inches = 256 in2 20,736/256 = 81

Not enough information. 8x8 what?

The patio is 10x 12 = 120 sq ft or 17,280 sq in The pavers are 16x16 = 256 sq in So you need 17280/256 = 68 pavers

It is assumed that all measurements are in the same units since there is n indication in the question as to what they might be. In that case, one paver will be enough.

One. At 16 x 16, the paver is bigger than the patio which is only 14 x 10.

6 x 6 : Since 2 pavers are needed for each foot, 12 x 12 patio will require 24 x 24 pavers. 6 x 9 : 2 pavers for each foot along one 12 foot side = 24 The other side will require fewer, 4 for every 3 feet or 16 overall Thus total required will be 24 x 16 pavers. You do the math.
