11 1/2= 23 halves 9 1/2= 19 havles multiply those by each other and that's your answer

The area of the floor is 11.5 x 9.5 = 109.25 square feet.

The area of each tile is: 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.25 square feet.

Dividing 109.25 by 0.25 gives an answer of 437 tiles.

Here's a third explanation lol

How many pairs of apples are there in a batch of 10 apples? 10 รท 2 = 5 pairs of apples

How many \(\frac12\times\frac12=\frac14\) square feet tiles are there in \( 11\frac12\times9\frac12 = \frac{437}{4} \) square feet?

\(\frac{437}{4} \div \frac14 =\frac{437}{4}\times\frac41=437\) one-fourth square feet, or tiles
