An interior painter is painting a wall that is 8 feet by 14 feet. He needs to determine how much paint he will need for the job.
If a pint will cover 40 square feet, how many pints of paint are needed to paint the wall?

1. Natasha

Compute the area
8 ft x 14 ft =112ft^2
Then,
If one pint = 40 ft^2

112ft^2/40ft^2 = 112/40 pints (calculate this in your calculator)
