Mr.Jones wants to put tiles on the floor by the front door of his house. He wants to use 3 different colors of tiles in his design. one half of the tiles to be blue, one fourth of the tiles to be gray, and one fourth of the tiles to be red.
I need to use a grid and label each tile.
I don't understand how to solve this problem.

    Since you don't say how big this area is, let's assume it's 6 feet by 6 feet. Draw that area on your grid -- using either graph paper or a scale of 1 inch = 1 foot.

    Do you see how he could divide these tiles into four sections?
