Unless my interpretation of the question is faulty, I stand by my previous answer.

I think it comes down to interpretation. Looking at the previous answer, it looks like that the tiles are assumed to be square.

If the tiles are 4x8 (i.e. rectangular tiles), we would be able to form two different rectangles by piling them in different directions (4*24 or 8*12).
