    This is always an extremely delicate situation to confirm with any customer, and more so if the triangle although stated as being an isosceles is not of equal 60 degree angles! As previously stated the size of the tile is often the determining factor with reference to wastage as the resultant cut off may not be able to be utilised in another position. I of course can fully cover a 2.5m areas perfectly with 2.5m of tiles - however it will resemble a mosaic in the style of Gaudi! Therefore in the interest of clarity at the measuring stage I would assume the area to be a rectangle of the Pythagoras style and allow the tiles to overlap the Hypotenuse by full units, thus allowing a fairly accurate indication of actual tiles required. If indeed a client was of the opinion that I'd over measured then I was obviously not meant to do their work in the first place.

    I always knew my degree in mathematics would come in handy one day!:lol: Although the triangles area can be exactly determined, the number of tiles required will no doubt depend on the individual tile size and the amount of wastage due to pattern, shape, etc. It would normally be easier with measurements of this size just to graph out the area and overlay your tile set out to calculate a reasonable gestimate!

    As the sizes given are for an isosceles triangle with 2 equal sizes it has a different formula than those calculations above which refer to a right angled triangle! However in this instance as the sizes of the sides are not that far removed from each other the answer is the same - 2.52 m2. and for those that may not know Pythagoras is just for the right angle and not area!

    As Marc says, 2.4x2.1=5.04 divide by 2 = 2.52 m2.
