Explanation & Answer

i am making a rough calculation 

1 liquid gallon takes up 231 cubic inches 

Convert 8.91 feet to inches: 

8.91 * 12 = 106 + 1.06 = 106.08 inches 

Imagine that there is a "box" of paint on the wall with dimensions of 9.09 feet by 9.09 feet by "t" inches in thickness 


106.08 * 106.08 * t = 231 
11898.4464 * t = 231 
t = 0.019414299332390151373039760888447 inches 

1 inch = 25.4 millimeters = 25400 micrometers 

Set up a simple ratio: 

0.019414299332390151373039760888447 / x = 1 / 25400 
25400 * 0.019414299332390151373039760888447 = x 
493.12320304270984487520992656655 = x 

 thickness = 500 micrometers.

please it is step by step
