Calculate the amount of tiles needed

Hi,

I will lay floor tiles 6”x 47 ¼” (1.9 sqft). The area is 50 sqft. Is there a general rule to calculate the amount of tile needed? How much % would I have to add to the 50 sqft?

Thanks,

Thank you.

I’m not concerned about the building code as this is not a new construction and my own house. I’m concerned about the steam I wanna keep inside not escaping the steam room.
