*square feet*!!
or ft^2
oh ok
For part C lets draw the shed|dw:1357181304571:dw|
They say were gunna build it 7 feet high
they want to paint these 4 walls|dw:1357181419789:dw|
how many square feet is this one|dw:1357181480246:dw|
7 * 7.5

two of what?
those walls... one here|dw:1357181622209:dw| and one here|dw:1357181630269:dw|
yes two!
They are booth 52.5?
Yes! They are both 52.5 ft^2 because they have the same base and height. So the are we need to paint for those two walls is 52.5 ft^2 + 52.5 ft^2 = ???
52.5 + 52.5 = 105
but we cant just leave the other two walls blank! we have to paint those ones too.
How many square feet is this wall?|dw:1357181872337:dw|
* remember base * height
12 x 7
is 84
84 ft^2
and there are two of those...
84 ft^2 + 84 ft^2 =168 ft^2
So the total sq feet that we have to paint is 105 + 168
yep.. but wait a minute that's if we paint it once
they want us to paint two coats...
so x 2
ok so that is 546^2ft
thats how many square feet total we need to cover with paint
each can of paint covers 250 square feet
how many cans do we need?
Are we still on c?
each can overs 250 ft^2 how many can do we need to cover 546 ft^2
3 cans
done with c
:) Great!
for D we have to see if we can fit 53 boxes into the shed
each box is 24 in by 18 in by 24 in.
since we are already in feet if we should change each of those to feet
how many inches are in 1 foot?
