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 x 250 m^2   *  1 ft / .3048 m  *   1 ft / .3048 m  *   1 gal / 200 ft2   = 161.45 gal = ~~ 162 gallons needed
