How many gallons of white paint does hamza have to buy?

timer Asked: Sep 13th, 2015

Question description

Hamza bought 8 gallons of brown paint to paint his kitchen and dining room. Unfortunately when hamza started painting he thought the paint was too dark for his house so he wanted to make it lighter. The store manager would not let hamza return it but did inform him that if he used 1/4 of a gallon of white paint mixed with 2 gallons of brown paint he would get the shade he desired. How many gallons of white paint would hamza have to buy to lighten the 8 gallons of brown paint?
