Sam is going to tile a rectangular room that has an area of 64 square feet. He will be using square tiles that measure 1/4 square feet.
If the dimensions of the sun room are to be whole numbers in feet, list all of the possible sets of dimensions (length & width) FOR THE SUN ROOM AS WELL as the total number of tiles needed for each pair of dimensions that you give.
Where do I start?
