Answer:
16 tiles
Stepbystep explanation:
If the tile is a 1/4 foot wide, then 4 will fit in a foot, and if theres 4 feet to fill, 16 tiles will fit.
If you wanted to write an equation to solve it:
[tex]\frac{1}{4}x=4[/tex]
where x is the number of tiles that will fit. This equation reads "1/4 foot times the number of tiles = 4 feet"
[tex]\frac{x}{4} =4\\x=4\times4\\x=16[/tex]
