# How many 300 x 600 tiles in a square metre (m2)?

The quantity of 300 x 600 tiles in a square metre (m2) equals **6 tiles**. Assuming dimensions of the tile width and height are in millimetre measurements, which equates to 30cm x 60cm tiles in a square metre.

6 tiles in 1m^{2}

## How To calculate how many 300x600 tiles there are in a m2

To calculate how many 300x600 tiles there are in 1 square metre, use this method:

### Step 1:

Multiply the width and height of one tile. So in this case the area of one tile is:
300mm x 600mm = **0.18** m^{2}
or
30cm x 60cm = **0.18** m^{2}

### Step 2:

Divide 1m by the area of one tile to give you the number of 300mm x 600mm tiles in a m^{2}:
1m / 0.18 = **5.6 Tiles per m ^{2}**

### Step 3:

**NOTE:** It is only possible to buy whole tiles, therefore you need to round up 5.6 tiles to 6 tiles

**6 tiles required**
