remove viynl add tile
i had viynal in my master bath and i want to add tile i removed the vinal but there is a layer of thin set on the floor,
although it is smoothe do i need to break it up before putting down tile and if so how is the easiest way of doing this

Are you sure it is thinset, and not the backing off the tile? Usually you will see serpentine lines where the adhesive was put down with a notched trowel if its just the adhesive.
