**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, May 26, 2013 at 9:09pmNo. Picture each wall as a rectangle. Find the area of each wall.

What about the height of the walls?

**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, May 26, 2013 at 9:20pmLet's start over.

Two walls are 12 feet by 7 feet.

A = 2(12 * 7) = 168 square feet

Two walls are 15 feet by 7 feet.

A = 2 (15 * 7) = 210 square feet

210 + 168 = 378 square feet of walls

It sounds like just one gallon of paint will cover the four walls.
