    yes, you have to convert. that's the whole point of the problem.

    anyways,

    14ft × 16ft × (12in/ft)² × (2.54cm/in)² × (m/100cm)² ≈ 20.8m²

    so

    15m² is not enough

    First of all, find the area of the room= 14ft X 16 ft = ft squared

    Then divide your answer by 15 squared metres worth of tiles to find out how many tiles......
