I got my answer form here: https://brainly.com/question/4538807

Answer: 4 feet

Tiles 4 feet by 4 feet will fill up the entire 96 sq ft area in just six tiles; three rows and two columns of them. A tile with the dimensions of 4 x 4 has an area of 16 sq ft, which divides evenly in 96 (96/16=4). 16 is the largest square that divides into 96, making it the largest square tile that can be used to cover the entire floor smoothly without cutting. The side length is 4, so the answer is 4 feet.
