Good queston @gmarkj 

The total number of tiles - the total number of letter tiles plus the total number of blank tiles in the English version of the game of Scrabble.

NOT the number of tiles each player has at the start of the game NOR the squares on the board

 

I hope that helps clarify the question and apologies for any confusion caused.
