The space to be tiled has an area of 8*8 = 64 square feet. Each tile is 2*2 = 4 square feet. The number of tiles needed is then 64/4. Answer by richwmiller(9135)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!you need to find the area to be covered by tiles. 8ft by 8 ft (a small kitchen?) you need to find the area covered by one tile. 2ft by 2 ft then divide the large area by the small area (one tile area)that is (large area/one tile to find out how many tiles. it won't be many since the area is small and the tiles are big.
