Sean is helping his dad build a tiled walkway in their backyard. The walkway will be 60 feet long and 2 feet wide. The local hardware store sells tiles which are 2 by 2 feet and come in boxes of 6. There isn't a calculator for Rational Word Problems.

I assume you want to know how many tiles or how many boxes of tile they need? I'll do both: Since each tile covers the full 2 foot width of the walkway, we need to see how many tiles length wise we need. 60/2 = 30 tiles needed to cover the full walkway. Now, each box contains 6 tiles, which means we need 30 tiles/6 tiles per box = 5 boxes of tiles
