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.
