Tina has a cubic container she uses to store all of her pencils. The cubic container has a side length of 8cm. She would like to paint the entire outside of the container a new, shiny blue color. Blue paint comes in cans that contains 10 ounces of paint. Each can of paint costs $4.00. If every ounce of paint covers 2 square cm of the container, how much will Tina have to spend in total to paint the entire outside of the container? PLZZ HELP !!
