Assuming it is 8ft wide (2438mm) and you laid the tiles in a portrait orientation you would need just over 8 across and 2 down to cover it completely. Which makes 16 in total so I would say 130 is more than enough with overhang.

Ok I had to ask as the guy said there enough to do 24foot (unsure how) and I was unsure as I no they have to lap / overhang

You have enough but why not use a Dutch or Staggered Lap. Add a bit of individuality.

You will need 32 slate's each side so 64in total.

I'll be using to cover a pizza oven which at top temputure will get to 500 degrees this will have a chimney which will go though the roof so needing something like slate with the temp,

I couldn't remember where I saw this table, but I have found it if you go for std hang. They are Duchess Slates or as near as damn it.
