Mr. Woody's house

Hey guys I have a problem and I was wondering if you could help me.

Mr. Woody said I won’t be able to pass my student teaching practicum unless I paint his house. It’s going to be a big job and I will need a lot of paint.

I know that one 20 liters bucket will cover an area of 4 meters by 4 meters and I will need three coats.

All three doors are 1 meter by 1.8 meters and the windows are 1 meter by 1 meter, so I can subtract these from the wall area as they won’t need painting.

This is the house (not to scale)

This is a Rear view of the house.

If you have any questions, please ask me.

Oh and write you answers down in your math’s book so we can discuss it all together. (don’t post them here, we don’t anyone to steal your thunder and copy your answers)

Did I mention there would be a reward for all those who help me?

Good luck!
