Installing laminate, question about subfloor prep


The house has concrete slab with plastic/linoleum tiles all over. The current tile, carpet, kitchen linoleum was all install right on these "tiles". While pulling the tack strips for the carpet a lot of the tiles have broke leaving an area lower than the surrounding. What should I use to fill the area and make it flat?

Are these coverings common on slabs?

Would it be ok to use to fill in voids of where the tiles are missing?
