Mr. Matobato bought a new two-storey vacation house with a total lot area of three hundred
thirty six square meters (336 sqm) and with a building area of one hundred forty four
square meters (144sqm), with a dimension of 12m X 12m.

The built house consists of a 2 bedroom, each has a size of 5 X 6m2 and built in toilets,
1.5m x 2.0m in size.

184. Compute of the no. 1.20 X 0.30 wooden type flooring tile for one bedroom not
considering 10% wastage.
a. 30 to 80 pcs c. 80 to 100 pcs
b. 101 to 120 pcs d. 121 to 130 pcs

Solution:
30sqm / 0.36 = 83.333 or 84 pcs

185. If Mr. Matobato wants to use 600mm X 600mm tile on the bedroom area, how many
200mm X 200mm tiles needed for the two toilets not considering the 5% wastage.
a. 120 pcs b. 130 pcs c. 140 pcs d. 150 pcs

Solution:
1.5 X 2 = 3sqm X 2 = 6sqm / 0.04 = 150 pcs

186. Mr. Matobato hired Ar. Dela Pena to design his roof deck and add a perimeter

Solution:
Compute for the perimeter of the two rooms
6(2) + 7(2) = 26 X 2 = 52
Perimeter of circle= 2πr = 2(3.1416)(2.25) = 14.1372

Solution:
Door area = 1.89
Wall area = 6 X2.7 = 16.2 + (7X2.7=18.9) = 35.1 X 2 = 70.2
70.2 - 1.89 = 68.31 X 2(rooms) = 136.62sqm
