Each gallon of paint covers 200 square feet. I have to paint one side of a wall that is 12 meters tall and 250 meters long. If a foot is approximately 0.3048  meters, then what is the smallest whole number of gallons I can buy and have enough paint to cover the whole wall?

[250 / 0.3048]  x  [12 / 0.3048] ==~32,292 sq. feet in the wall

 

32,292 / 200 ==161.46 ==162 gallons of paint needed to paint the entire wall.
