Jena wants to paint the walls in her square shaped bedroom. each wall has an area of 130 sq ft. if one quart of paint covers 150 sq ft, how many quarts of paint will she need to buy to paint all four walls?

Would I leave it 4.6 or round up to five quarts?

  • Algebra -

    Neither.

    (130 * 4) / 150 = ?

    Round up because nobody's going to sell you a part of a quart.
