Each gallon of paint covers 200 square feet. I have to paint one side of a wall that is 12 meters tall and 50 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?

 

thank u so much !

The area of the wall is 600 m^2.  To convert to ft^2, we divide by 0.3048, so 1968.5 ft^2.  Divide by 200 ft^2: 9.84 gallons.  So you need 10 gallons of paint.
