Kaylee has 2 gallons each of red and blue paint, and 1 gallon each of orange and green paint. She paints her bedroom with these jars of paint. If she uses 2/3 of the red paint, 1/4 of the blue paint, 1/2 of the orange paint, and 3/4 of the green paint, how much paint (in gallons) does Kaylee have left over?

$2 \cdot \frac{1}{3} + 2 \cdot \frac{1}{4} + 1 \cdot \frac{1}{2} + 1 \cdot \frac{1}{4} = \frac{23}{12}$.

 

We take the remaining fraction of the paint in each jar and add them together, thus, our answer is $\boxed{\frac{23}{12}}$

Just a slight mistake  by xC.....

 

2(1/3)  + 2(3/4)  +  1(1/2)  +  1(1/4)  =

 

2/3   +  6/4  + 1/2  +  1/4  =

 

2/3   + 3/2  + 1/2  + 1/4   =

 

2/3 + 1/4  +  2  =

 

(4*2 + 1*3)  /12   +   24/12

 

(11/12)  + 24/12  =

 

35/12   gals  left over

The sum of paint : 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 = 6 gallons

      6 - 2/3 * 2 - 1/4 * 2 x 1/2 * 1 - 3/4 * 1 {   left   paint }

     = 6 - 4/3 - 1/2 - 1/2 - 2/4

      = 35/12   gallons

      = 2.92 gallons
