Mrs. Lopez wants to retile her 16 ft by 18 ft dining room.
a. How many 1 sq ft tiles does she need? I calculated 288 tiles
b. She changes her mind and wants to use 4 in by 4 in square tiles. How many square tiles does she need? I'm stump on how to answer this part of the question

    a. correct

    b. 1 foot = 12 inches = 4" * 3

    Therefore each square foot tile = 3 * 3 4-inch square tiles.
