Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Area of a parallelogram is base times height. So each parallelogram has an area of 5 * 2 = 10ft^2. There are 4 windows so if each one takes up 10 ft^2 then those 4 windows would take up 40ft^2. The wall is 25 * 11 which is 275 ft^2. So if you take away the window space 40 Ft^2, you are left with 235 ft^2 of wall to stain.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are 9 ft^2 in 1 yd^2 so if you have 235 ft^2 then you have 235/9 yd^2 26yd^2 with 1ft^2 left over. 2.75 * 26 = $71.50 you have 1 ft^2 left over so you will have to buy one more can of stain at 2.75. $71.50 + $2.75 = $74.25
