Before the new carpet can be put down, all the walls and ceiling will be painted with primer. If 1 gallon covers 300 square feet, how many gallons will be needed. 44ft, 32ft, 8ft is the measurement of the area..

1 gallon = 300 square feet

then

1/300 gallon = 1 square feet .......................1

Now for 44 feet we multiply 44 on both sides, then

44 * 1/300 gallon = 44 square feet

0.147 gallon = 44 square feet

Now for 32 feet we multiply 32 on both sides of equation 1 , then

32 * 1/300 gallon = 32 square feet

0.107 gallon = 32 square feet

Now for 8 feet we multiply 8 on both sides of equation 1 , then

8 * 1/300 gallon = 8 square feet

0.027 gallon = 8 square feet
