Easiest and least destructive way - use a hairdryer to heat the tile up, and peel it off.

I have a 12x12 vinyl stick down tile in the middle of the floor with a rock or something under it. how do I replace it?

If it is 12 x 12 tile, and not sheet with a 12x12 pattern you should be able to get a corner up and just peel the one square out.
If it's a sheet with a 12x12 title pattern and the bump is small, you can put a metal putty knife flat over the bump and hit it once with a hammer to see if you can flatten it. If the bump is large you're going to have to do a clean cut to remove it, the use a heat gun and a metal putty knife to flatten it out afterwards.

12 x 12 marble tile I have put that up twice don't know why it is not appearing

60 if there are no cuts.
You usually add about 10% for waste. So 66 tiles should do it.

If I have an area that is 22 x 14.5", how many boxes of 12 x12 tile do I need?

You should allow about 5% for waste that would take you to about 335 . I am assuming the sizes you gave were in feet and inches. Divide the 335 by the number of sheets in a box and take it up to the next full box.

Remove rust from tile and tub

If you are concerned with toxic products and damage to the tub and tiles, here's a "natural" solution. Peel off a few oranges and stuff the peels in a sealable jar(like a mason jar). Add vinegar to near the top and seal the jar. Let it sit for 2 weeks on your shelf. Open and use on stains. Works really good and not poisonous.
Let me know if it worked for you. P.S. You can use other citrus peels too, like pineapple etc.... Good luck.

Can ceramic tile be installed over old ceramic tile?

You can install tile over tile. However here are the risks. The new tiles will require at least 3/16" of tile adhesive UNDER the tiles when put in place after they have been pressed into position. Additionally the trim around the tiles willhave to be removed and elevated the distance of the tile thickness and the 3/16" grout distance. The tiles if on the second floor of a home will easily losen due to the expansion and contraction of the home and the difference in the 2 types of tiles expansion and contraction rates.

It is not difficult to remove old tiles. You use a flat bar type scraping tool and the old tiles usually will pop right up off the floor. You will have to break maybe 2 tiles to get started but after that they are easy to remove.

My experience in my own fully tiled in all rooms 2900 sq ft home in the tropics is that I have to remove the old tiles as over time the new tiles losen on top of the old tiles. I have tried it several times and have had at least 1 tile come loose each time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Wrong floor tile adhesive used. Contractor used timber floor adhesive instead of concrete. Some tiles cracking and adhesive not drying?

it depends on what kind of tiles they were. If they were soft tile, then they may crack anyway if the floor is not level, also if he made the floor uneven by using the adhesive they can crack. Many soft tiles are peel and stick and no adhesive is needed. If they were hard stone tiles then he should have been using grout to stick them down and grout the cracks in between as well. It sounds like you need to have someone else come in and re-access the problem as I can't see the whole situation, but it sounds like the tiles may need to come back up. You can either get the same guy to come back and fix his mistake or get some one else to fix it then go after him to messing it up. If you want to choose another person I recommend looking at
