# How many 60 x 60 tiles in a square metre (m2)?

The quantity of 60 x 60 tiles in a square metre (m2) equals **278 tiles**. Assuming dimensions of the tile width and height are in millimetre measurements, which equates to 6cm x 6cm tiles in a square metre.

278 tiles in 1m^{2}

## How To calculate how many 60x60 tiles there are in a m2

To calculate how many 60x60 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:
60mm x 60mm = **0.0036** m^{2}
or
6cm x 6cm = **0.0036** m^{2}

### Step 2:

Divide 1m by the area of one tile to give you the number of 60mm x 60mm tiles in a m^{2}:
1m / 0.0036 = **277.8 Tiles per m ^{2}**

### Step 3:

**NOTE:** It is only possible to buy whole tiles, therefore you need to round up 277.8 tiles to 278 tiles

**278 tiles required**
