Note first that

\[1 m^2 =10000 cm^2. \]

Hence

\[129 m^2= 129 \times 10000=1290000 cm^2.\]

Now

\[\frac{1290000}{5.8}=222413.793103.\]

So $222413$ such tiles can fit into an area of 129 $m^2$.

To determine the number of 5.8 cm² tiles that can fit into an area of 129 m², we need to convert the units to be consistent. Let's convert the area from square meters to square centimeters first.

1 square meter = 10,000 square centimeters

So, 129 m² = 129 * 10,000 cm² = 1,290,000 cm².

Now, we can calculate the number of 5.8 cm² tiles that can fit into this area by dividing the total area by the area of each tile:

Number of tiles = Total area / Area of each tile

Number of tiles = 1,290,000 cm² / 5.8 cm²

Using division, we find that approximately 222,414 tiles can fit into the given area.
