How about laying the tiles in a 35 × 68 array (2380 tiles)? They won't fill the entire floor area.

1. convert the dimensions of the tile from inches into metres 2. divide the total width and by the width of the tile to get the number of tiles. 3. Do step 2, but for height

Or just type (16.22 meters) / (18 inches) into Google, etc.
