Ignore that post. It added the window and door, rather than subtracting them. Also, you started out by saying the walls were 8' high. What's the 5x7 foot stuff? And we STILL don't know how wide the walls are!!!!

Boy, you're not willing to put anything into this, are you? so, the painted area is (converting the door and window to feet, rather than inches): 4(5*7) + 7*3 + 2*3 = 167 ft^2 So, how many cans will it take, at 100 ft^2 per can?

math - still incomplete
so, the walls are 8' high. How wide are they? Are they all 4 the same width? If not, can we assume the room is rectangular? At any rate, you surely know that for a rectangle, the area is height x width. So, add up the areas for all the walls, then subtract the areas of the...

review your basic trig function definitions. Draw a diagram, and you will see that the line-of-sight distance x is given by 800/x = sin 12° The distance along the ground is given by 800/x = tan 12° Pick your case, and just solve for x.
