  1. Assuming a single blue tile between red tiles, we have the following table, for a single row of red tiles:
    R B
    1 12
    2 20
    3 28
    4 36
    ...

    If the red tiles are laid out in a rectangular grid, then we have
    R B
    1 12
    2 20
    4 34
    ...

    So, decide on the layout of the red squares before you make your table.
