The plot below shows the volume of paint left in  4 cans 

All measurements are rounded to the nearest  1/2 pint

If we split the total amount of paint so that each can had the same amount, how much paint would be in each can?

The  amount  of paint  is

 

1(2  1/2)   + 2(4)  + 1(5  1/2)  =

 

5/2  +  8   + 11/2 =

 

16/2  + 8

 

8 +  8

 

16

 

So....each can would contain   16/2  =   8 pints
