    I did some painting and decorating for a retired school teacher a couple of months back.

    She now wants me to do some tiling for her. She emailed me giving measurments in inches.

    She had tiles removed around he bath, walls plastered and now wants me to retile.

    Two walls are 29 inches wide by 69 inches high. The third wall is 66 inches by 69 inches.

    She has purchased 20 boxes of tiles, which state each box covers 1 m²

    Having had a few beers I can't do the math but I think she has purchased to many.

    help...

    Are you sure the wall measurements are correct? The width of the walls seem very small e.g. you could barely fit a small bath in the room, nevermind a toilet etc.[/b]

    It is the three walls surrounding a small bath.
