196 full squares. If you can cut the 6x6 squares in thirds to fill the excess then it's 200 2/3.

81 exactly

2 with a bit of left over space

It depends what size squares you use. If the squares are 1 x 1, then there are 18. If the squares are 0.5 x 0.5, then there are 72. If the squares are 0.1 x 0.1, then there are 1,800. If the squares are 3 x 3, then there are 2, but you have to cut one of them up to fit it in.

There are 90000 of them.

The answer will depend on the dimensions of the 2 squares

That depends on the size of the suares. For example, there will be a million squares with sides of 0.001 ft each. If the 12 square ft area is in the form of a 6*2 rectangle, there will be space for 3 squares of 2*2. But if the area is 3*4 then 2*2 squares cannot cover it without overlap.

You would need two 3 cm squares and two 2 cm squares to get a total area of 35 sq cm. A 3 cm square has an area of 9 sq cm and a 2 cm square has an area of 4 sq cm.

Area of a Square is given by s^2 (s = length of a side)Using that, the area of one of the small squares is 7^2 = 49cm^2Now, how many of these squares can be cut out of a 240cm^2 square is given by:240/49 = 4, 89 squares = 4 complete squares or Just less than 5 Squares.

You will need 100 of them, but they are rectangles, not squares.
