The four sides of a rectangular shed are being painted. The shed measures 14 feet by 10 feet and is 8 feet tall. A gallon of paint covers 250 square feet. How many gallons of paint are needed?

(14+10)*16 = 384. 

384/250 = 1.536

 

So he needs 1.536 gallons of paint. :)))

here are tow sides that are   14 x 8

  and two sides that are         10 x 8

 

2 (14*8) + 2(10*8) = 384 ft 2

 

384 ft2  /   250 ft2 / gal  =  1.536 gallons needed
