How do I approach a fireplace hearth tile project?

Answered

I have some ceramic tile I would like to place over the existing slate hearth. The tile I have will also cover a small portion of carpet as well. So do I have to cut away the carpet where the tile will lay? Can I simply adhere the tile to a plywood subfloor and and a finished edge to the project? And is it okay to lay the tile over the slate that presently makes up the hearth? Any guidance on how to approach this is much appreciated!
