11 2/3   =   35/3   =   280/24

 

7 7/8   =   63/8   =   189/24

 

The GCF of  280  and  189  is  7 , so....

 

We can divide the side that is  280/24 m long into  40  equal parts, each  7/24 m long.

 

We can divide the side that is  189/24 m long into  27  equal parts, each  7/24 m  long.

 

So the maximum size of a square tile that will fit the room exactly is  7/24 m  by  7/24 m  .
