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?

12  x  50 = 600 m^2 - the area of the wall.

1 square meter =~10.76 square feet.

600  x  10.76 =6,456 square feet - the area of the wall.

6,456 / 200 =32.28 gallons, or round it to 33 whole gallons of paint.
