A rectangle floor tile has its dimension to the nearest 0.1 metres.
1.6m x 2.3m
the tile is only able to sustain a maximum pressure of 200 newtons per square meter (n/m^2), correct to the 5n/m^2
Given that pressure = force/area
work out the maximum force, in newtons, that can safely be applied to the tile.
also its using limits of accuracy and upper and lower bounds.
