A room was lined up with 144 floor tiles, how many tiles are on each of the walls?

OpenStudy (shadowfiend):

Do we know the shape of the room?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

square room

OpenStudy (shadowfiend):

So if I have a square room with sides of length \(s\), how do I find the area of the room?

The teacher gave an answer of 12, but not sure how she got to that answer. Can someone pls. explain?

OpenStudy (shadowfiend):

So if you have a square with sides of a given length, the area is given by multiplying that length by itself. So a square with sides of length 4 has an area of 4 x 4 = 16. In this case, we have an area of 144, and we know that it's a square. The question is, what number, when multiplied by itself, gives you 144.
