A gallon of paint covers about 350 square feet how many gallons would be required to paint a room that is
11 ft in length 10 1/2 in width and
9 ft 7 inches in height. round up to the nearest gallon

Assuming you want to paint 4 walls with no windows or doors __
2 walls at 11 * 9.058 = ?
2 walls at 10.5 * 9.058 = ?
Add the two answers together to find how many square feet you need to cover. 
Ms. Sue's answer is correct as far as she goes, except for one typo.
9 ft 7 inches = 9.58 feet.
After you get the total square feet, divide by 350.
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
