Now they plan to paint it blue on the outside. How much paint will they need to buy to paint all 4 walls, if they do 2 coats of paint? (Hint: 1 can of paint covers 250 square feet). Show and explain all your work. D. Patrick and his dad want to put 53 boxes in the shed. Each box measures 24 inches by 18 inches by 24 inches. Will all the boxes fit in the shed? If so, how much space will they have left in feet? Show and explain all your work.
