18" is 1.5ft. Area of tile = 1.5 x 1.5 = 2.25 sq ft. Therefore 100/2.25 = 44.4 or a minimum of 45 tiles. Beware! The shape of the area may require more tiles

Peter answered that correctly and his words of wisdom at the end definitely need to be followed. I always figure at least 10% overage when bidding a job so therefore you would need at least 110 sq. ft. of tile to complete this job which is 49 pieces. The reason for needing extra is, as Peter alluded to, cuts and breakage. You always have that one cut during a job that you think you can do on the wet saw and then about halfway to three quarters of the way into the cut the tile will snap on you in the middle of making the cut.
