If you have a room that is 250 square inches and you are wanting to cover the floor using 5inx8in tiles how many tiles would it take?

Are you sure the room is 250 square inches? That means that each side is not more than a foot long.

Yes, here is the exact question....... Thomas is planning on redoing his bathroom floor with tiles measuring 5in by 8in. The floor has an area of 205in square. What is the least number of tiles he will need? I can't not figure this out, can someone please help?
