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?

12 m x 250 m = 3000 m2

 

3000 m^2  / ( .3048 m/ft  * .3048 m/ft) = 32291.73 ft2

 

32291.73 ft/  200 ft2 / gal = .........    gallons     ( round UP to whole gallons)
