Chen is covering a 12-in. by 10-in. board with 1-inch-square tiles. He uses gray tiles to make six 2-in. by 2-in. squares. He covers the rest of the board with white tiles. How many more white tiles than gray tiles will Chen use?

    In the first question, you needa find the area, so 12 x 10 = 120. next, it says that he is using six 2 x 2 inch squares, so 6 x 4 = 24, do you know what to do next?

    That's okay, you subtract. 120-24 What do you get?
