Hi guys need some help here to see if my thinking is off. I'm over here in Iraq and my girl in the states is having someone rip out a bad tile job of 35 boxes of 12 x 12. Now the new guy wants to order 36 boxes of 16 x 16. Now I know one has more waste with the larger tile but this just doesnt add up to me. How would you covert the different tile.

Even though the tile size is different, we don't know how many tiles (i.e. square feet) are in each box. So 35 boxes of 12x12 tile may have the same square footage as 36 boxes of 16x16. My guess is that each box has approximately the same square foot coverage, even though the tile size is different. Without knowing the square foot coverage of each box, you cannot compare based on tile size alone.

Keep safe.
