2. Let us say that the tile is 4x4

it is best to convert the units of the area from "feet" to "inches" to align it with the unit of the tiles (because that is what's being asked))

The conversion will go like this:
since 1 feet is equivalent to 12 inches
we must multiply

11ft x 12 = 132 inches
14ft x 12 = 168 inches

we will now divide it by the size of the tile

132 inches/4 inches = 33
168 inches/4 inches = 42

Now multiply the two values

33 x 42 = 1386 tiles that has the size of 4 square inches each.
