Inategemea ukubwa wa vyumba vyako. The way umeweza kutambua ukubwa wa tile, fanya mahesabu pia ya ukubwa wa vyumba vyako ni square mita ngapi then gawanya kwa ukubwa wa tile utapata idadi ya tiles zinazohitajika

Get the exact area of the rooms. Do not forget the corridors; paths; toilet and bathrooms and kitchen

Measure them seperately because the vendor should give you different tiles for each area
Then go to the shop with your AREAS broken down and ask the vondor to givre you the number of boxes required.

I will advise you to add continguencies because some are bound to break in transit and during laying.
Good luck!!

kwenye unit measurement nakuna upana wa one sq. meter
dunia nzima hautapata vipi hivi

One square meter Inabidiatokana na size ya tile mbaya ni urefu mara upana (length x width), sasa fafanua unahitaji kuja nini?

Kwa kifupi nilivyo kukusoma ni hivi

Kama tiles zako zina size let say 30x30cm then one tile equal to 0.09 sq. Meter , hivyo basi kama chumba kimoj kina urefu wa 3 meters by 4 meters maana yake una 12 sq. meters , then 12 devide by 0.09 utapata = 133.3 square meters

All the best

133 tiles sio sq meters. Plus azingatiev kuwa lazima ununue vya ziada kudidia zile ambazo zitatumika nusu nusu na ambazo zitavunjika.

Mkuu , Nimeandika crystal clear kamba kwa mfano huo anahitaji 133.3 square meters na siyo tiles, tiles zina size mbali mbali, hivyo basi box moja la tiles za size ya 30 x 30cm siyo sawa na box moja la tiles za size ya 40x 40 cm in terms of sq. Meters

quick reminder:
• surface of a rectangle or square = Urefu x Upana
• Kwa kutumia hii formula unatafuta surface ya tile moja, na ya chumba
• then unatumia rule of three kupata idadi ya tiles zitakazo tumika, whatever their surface.
(rule of three: the value of one unknown quantity in a proportion is found by multiplying the denominator of each ratio by the numerator of the other)

eg:
Chumba cha 3 x 3 kitahitaji 3 x 3 tiles (9 tiles = 9sqm)
Kama tile ni 0,3m mfano (I have seen this size before):
kwa chumba cha 3 X 3 itakua 10 x 10 tiles (100 tiles = 9sqm)

Pitia upya hesabu zako, anahitaji 133 tiles za 30x30 cm, SIO 133 sq meters. Anahitaji 12 sq meters ambayo ndo size ya chumba chake.
Chumba chake ni 12sq m. 133 sq m atazipeleka wapi?

kwa maneno mengine anahitaji box 7 za tiles za 30cm x30cm kwa chumba cha 3mx4m au box 8 za 40cmx40cm
