# 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)

**Solution:**

Given that the shape of the tile is a parallelogram.

Area of parallelogram = Base × Height

= 24 cm × 10 cm = 240 cm²

Hence, the area of one tile = 240 cm²

Area of the floor = 1080 m² (given)

Required number of tiles = Area of the floor / Area of one tile

= 1080 m² / 240 cm²

= (1080 × 10000) cm² / 240 cm²

= 45000 tiles

Thus, 45000 tiles are required to cover a floor of area 1080 m².
