How to get number of tiles?

What will I do to get the exact number of tiles that will fit on the floor area with a width of 16.22 meters and a length of 31.33meters if the tiles is 18 x 18 inches??

I don't know how will I start answering this.
Someone give me some guide..

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

Math Focus: Physics, mathematical modelling, numerical and computational solutions
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.
