Amy is painting one wall in her dining room. The wall is 10 feet by 13 feet. A gallon of paint covers 60 square feet. The hardware store only sells paint by the gallon, meaning that partial gallons cannot be purchased. Given this, how many gallons of paint will Amy need to purchase? Justify your answer with one complete sentence.

**Hello Guest!**

\(10\ feet\times 13\ feet:x =60\ square\ feet:1\\ 60x=130\\ x=2.1\overline 6 \)

Ami has to buy 3 gallons because:

\(2\ Gallons<10\ feet\times 13\ feet\times\frac{1\ Gallon}{60\ square\ feet}<3\ Gallons\)

120 square feet 130 square feet 180 square feet
