Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 12:23am.

There are three walls in Jordanís living room. The three walls, shown here, are 12 feet, 9 feet and 10 feet wide, respectively. Each wall has a height of 8 feet with a 6-inch baseboard along the bottom. The largest of the three walls contains a window that measures 5 feet by 6 feet. Jordan plans to paint the three walls of his living room by mixing together some paint he already has, which includes white #2, magenta #3, red #4, yellow #5 and green #6. Jordan has decided to paint two of the walls a pale goldenrod and the third wall will be painted burnt umber.




Suppose that 1 gallon of paint is used to cover 400 sq feet. Jordan plans to apply four coats of the goldenrod paint mixture to the 12-foot wall and the 9-foot wall leaving only the window and baseboard unpainted. How many gallons of the goldenrod paint mixture will he need? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest hundredth.
