find the cost of painting the four walls with two coats of paint costing $9.50 per gallon. each gallon covers 256 ft squared want with 1 coat .

  • Math -

    L x W x H
    18 x 14 x 8

    Room Perimeter
    P = 2W + 2L
    P = 2(14) + 2 (18)
    P = 28 + 36
    P = 64

    Perimeter * Height
    P = 64, H = 8
    Area to paint = 64 * 8
    A = 512 sq ft

    512 sq ft/256 sq ft paint coverage = gal of paint needed
    512/256 = 2 gals per coat

    2 gals/coat * 2 coats = ? ttl gals needed

    Gal. needed * 9.50 per/gal = Total Cost
