It is: 2200/400 = 5.5 and so 6 cans will be needed

The geometric term for the number of square units needed to cover a surface is called the area of said surface.

That's the "area" of the region or fugue.

A square unit is equal to 100 square feet so 2200 square units equals 220,000 square feet. One gallon of paint will cover approximately 400 square feet which means 550 gallons of paint are needed. If you plan on a double coat 1,100 gallons are needed. It will take 550-1,100 1 gallon cans of paint to cover 2,200 square units.

5.5 round it up to 6

The answer is 5.5 cans. You figure this by basic division: (2200 units) / (400 units per can) = 5.5 cans which means you have to buy 6 cans.

2200 square units ÷ 400 square units/tin = 5 1/2 tins. If you had no paint, as you cannot buy 1/2 a tin, you would need to buy 6 tins.

Divide 2200 by 400 = 5.5

One, if the square is large enough.
