A flooring tile has the shape of a parallelogram whose base is 24 cm and the corresponding height is 10 cm. How many such tiles are required to cover a floor of area 1080 m2? (If required you can split the tiles in whatever way you want to fill up the corners).

Given,
tile is in the shape of parallelogram with base = 24 cm and height = 10 cm
We know,
area of parallelogram = Base × Height
Therefore,
area of tile = 24(10) = 240 cm2

Now, area of floor = 1080 m2

(we know that, 1m = 100cm, therefore, 1m2 = 10000cm2)
Therefore,
= 1080 × (100)2 cm2
= 10800000 cm2

No of tiles required
