Question

A square tile has a width of 1/4 foot. How many tiles will fit end-to-end along a 4-foot wall?

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    16 tiles

    Step-by-step 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]
