Q:

# How many tiles make a rectangle that is two tiles wide?

A:

A rectangle that is two tiles wide can have an infinite number of tiles. In order to determine the number of tiles in a rectangle, the length of the rectangle in terms of tiles must also be considered.

A rectangle is a shape in which the length and the width are not necessarily the same. While the width of a rectangle is two tiles, the length could be anything from one to an infinite number of tiles while still remaining a rectangle. To determine the total number of tiles, or the area of the rectangle, multiply the width by the length. For example, if the width is two tiles and the length is three tiles, then the total number of tiles is six.

A rectangle is a simple shape that is characterized by having four sides at 90-degree angles to each other, and having both sets of opposing sides be the same length. Note that if all sides are equal to each other, the shape is not a rectangle, but a square.

Assuming length and width are whole numbers, a rectangle with an area of 64 units can be constructed in four different ways: 8 x 8, 4 x 16, 2 x 32 or 1 x 64. A square is a special case of a rectangle, as it has equal sides.

For each vector, the angle of the vector to the horizontal must be determined. Using this angle, the vectors can be split into their horizontal and vertical components using the trigonometric functions sine and cosine. The horizontal components for the vectors are solved separately from the vertical. The combined horizontal and vertical components are solved using the Pythagorean theorem to reach the final answer.
