How many 2 x 2 squares can fit inside a rectangle with a height of 20 and a width of 10?

50

Explanation

To calculate how many $$2 \times 2$$ squares will fit first find the area of the larger rectangle. Area for a rectangle is height multiplied by width: $$20 \times 10 = 200$$. A single $$2 \times 2$$square has an area of $$2 \times 2 = 4$$ so to find the number of these squares that will fit in the large rectangle divide the rectangle's area by the square's area: $$200 \div 4 = 50$$
