Homework Help: Raindrops in tiles

  1. Jun 10, 2013 #1
    1. Rain drops fall on a tile surface at a density
    of 4358 drops/ft^2. There are 13 tiles/ft^2.
    How many drops fall on each tile?
    Answer in units of drops/tile

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    what i did was to divide the amount of raindrops by the amount of tiles, (4358drops/ft^2)/(13tiles/ft^2)= 335.23 raindrops/tile. I'm not so sure if my result is the right one.

    also, I think I have to divide, because is the only way of getting rid of my ft^2.
