A gallon of paint can cover an area of 385 square feet. How thick is the coat of paint in inches.



  • Word Problem -

    It is not a good question, a gallon of wet paint dries, and the volume shrinks by about one half.

    Ignoring that reality, volume of paint is area * thickness
    1gallon= 385ft^2^thickness.

    You will have to make some unit conversions. You can check your work by putting this in the Google Search window:

    1gallon/385ft^2 in inches
