Help needed finding a formula
Hi Guys, see image attached.

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

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 8tile 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! https://imgur.com/a/BCfEePb
