Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

3 inch on each side gives us 9 square inches per each tile. we can convert the ft into inches or inches into fts in order to be able to divide through.

one foot is equal  to 12 inches!

so 3 inches would be  0.25 ft

area of the sqiare tile in feets= 0.25^2

=0.0625

4ft^2........of the table

divide by 0.0625 ft^2 of the tiles

=64 tiles!

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
