## Answers

Let us write down the factors of 90

90=1*90, 90=2*45, 90=3*30

90=5*18, 90=6*15, 90=9*10

Since, we have to lay down the tiles on the path of 90 feet without cutting so any of the size indicated by the factors will do.

90=1*90, 90=2*45, 90=3*30

90=5*18, 90=6*15, 90=9*10

Since, we have to lay down the tiles on the path of 90 feet without cutting so any of the size indicated by the factors will do.

Therefore, the possible solution to tile the path using tiles of length.

1foot, 2 feet, 3 feet; 2 feet, 3 feet, 5 feet; 3feet, 5 feet, 6 feet etc.

1foot, 2 feet, 3 feet; 2 feet, 3 feet, 5 feet; 3feet, 5 feet, 6 feet etc.
