## zakrocks007 Group Title M.C. Escher was a Dutch graphic artist. His artwork is very popular in the mathematical world. Many of his works are made of tessellations − a tiling of a shape with no gaps or overlaps covering an entire plane. The simplest way to create a tessellation is to trace the tile shape on paper over and over again, creating a pattern. Jamie wants to create a tessellation on a square poster board that has an area of 64 in2. The tile he is tracing is a square with a length of 2 inches. How many rows and columns of this tile will he have on his tessellation? one year ago one year ago

First you need to find the side length of the square poster board. Let this length = x inches. Then the area of the poster board = x^2 = 64 $x ^{2}=64$ $x=\sqrt{64}=? \ inches$
