How much would it cost to paint the four walls of a room that measures 20 ft. long by 10 ft. wide, and 10ft. tall if paint sells for $12 per gallon and one gallon covers 200 sq. ft.?

2 of the walls are 10 by 10, the other 2 are 20 by 10:
get total area; divide by 200; multiply by 12.

If you can't follow that, you need serious classroom help.
