108 square tiles

Step-by-step explanation:

This problem is solved by means of a law of proportionality. Knowing that a yes 1/6 of the floor would be with red square tiles and that represents 18 in quantity. The entire floor is 100%, that is to say the unit, therefore applying the law of proportion would look like this:

% of floor                       Amount of square tiles

1/6 —————————————-> 18

1 ——————————————–> X

Then X is equal to:

X = 1 * 18 / (1/6)

X = 108, therefore 108 square tiles are necessary to cover the entire floor.
