  1. For an area of 64 square feet, the dimensions being whole numbers, the possible cases are :

    l w
    ----

    1,64 ----rather silly
    2,32 --- still silly
    4,16
    8,8
    16,4
    32,2 ---- getting silly again
    64,1

    each gives an area of 64 square feet, each will need 64 ÷ 1/4 or 256 tiles
