Each gallon of paint covers 200 square feet. I have to paint one side of a wall that is 12 meters tall and 60 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 60 m = 720m^2

720 m2   x   1ft /.3048m  x  1ft / .3048 m   = ~ 7750 ft2

 

7750 ft/ 200ft2/ gal =......... gal
