so i'm unsure with that picture... obviously they gave dimensions of the windows so you could subtract the amount of paint needed to cover their area. but what about that red part? is that to be painted also? that formula you put is ok if you're gonna paint that red part.

good, and since we do not want to paint the windows (i assume) lets subtract the area of the 2 windows: 2*5*3 = area of 2 windows
