Hamza bought 8 gallons of brown paint to paint his kitchen and dining room. Unfortunately, when Hamza started painting, he thought the paint was to dark for his house, so he wanted to make it lighter. The store manager would not let Hamza return the paint but did inform him that if he used 14 of a gallon of white paint mixed with 2 gallons of brown paint he would get the shade brown he desired. So if Hamza decides to takes this approach, how many gallons of white paint would Hamza have to buy to lighten the 8 gallons of brown paint
