Help needed finding a formula

Hi Guys, see image attached.

  • Erdos Erdos

    The question is a bit unclear. Could you elaborate on what the problem is asking in part a?

  • Erdos Erdos

    There seems to be not enough information to solve this problem. For part a), having only the areas A is not enough. What if we the data center has a land which has a very large length but has a width 1 ft! In that case you can not fit any 8-tile pitch not matter how large the land is. Also in part ii) n is not given, you have just the area of the land.

  • Hi Philip, sorry for not getting back to you sooner, thank you for your help so far. Below is a link to the full question, maybe that would help with the context, I'm fairly certain I have the answers for part (a) and (b), its just (c) that is frying my brain!
