a room with a w, length L, and height h with four walls needs to be painted.
a. write a formula for the area that needs to be painted not accounting for doors or windows.
b. rewrite the formula to find h in terms of A, l, and w.
c. if L is 18 ft, w is 14 ft, A IS 512 ft, what is the height of the room?
d. reasoning: suppose L is equal to w. write a formula for A in terms of w and h.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
a. To determine the area that needs to be painted, we need to figure out the area of the 4 walls and the ceiling (assuming the floor isn't being painted). The area 2 of the walls will be L * H and the area of the other two walls will be W * H. Adding those all together will result in the final surface area
A = 2 * L * H + 2 * W * H
b. To find H in terms of the other variables, first factor out H, then put the non H terms on the other side, then divide both sides by everything H is multiplied by.
A = H (2L + 2W)
c. H = 512 / (2*18 + 2*14) = 8 ftA / (2L + 2W) = H
d. If L = W, just substitute a W in for every L in the area equation
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.A = H (2W + 2W)
A = 4WH
