The container is coated with 2 layers of specialty paint that costs \$6.05 per jar. Each jar pf paint covers 800cm2. How much does the paint cost?

• math -

What is the surface area of the container?

• math -

You need to know the "container" area that you are covering. Divide that by 800 cm^2 for the number of jars per coating layer. Double that for two coats. Then take the next larger integer if there is a fraction left over.

Then multiply that integer number of jars by \$6.05

So u use the formula for S.A which is 2*pi*r*h, but how do u know what shape the container is?

• math -

Unless the problem states what the container shape is, you don't know.

Your problem cannot be solved without the area. I have no idea what kind of container you are talking about. Somewhere along the line, you have not communicated all the information needed.
