    Wall A's area is easy to find. Just multiply the length and the width. For the others, try and divide the rectangles into small pieces. With those small pieces, find the area as well. Then, add the areas to find the total area that needs to be covered in paint.

    That was step 1 the next step says what is the total area that we need to cover with paint? Do I just add all of those areas together then? Or is there something else I feel like im over analyzing this. @DanJS
