    7 gallon of base per gallons of paint thus 8 gallons of paint would contain 1 gallon of colour and 7 gallons of base Find the ratio of pain to colour and multiply by 100 to convert to percent (1/8) = 0.125 or 12.5% thus the paint is 12.5% colour and 87.5% base .125 * 280 = 35 gallons of paint

    Seems as though the rest of us are more interested in this problem than the asker.
