"Regular" feet are used to measure how long something is, like a rope, or how far something is, like the house down the street. You can't use those at all to measure how much paint you need for a wall, or how much rug you need for a floor. To do that kind of measurements, you need a new kind of unit, like "square feet". They're completely different from regular feet. You can't change one into the other. I don't care how many feet long a piece of string is ... you can't cover a floor with it.

Is this a grade school math quiz? 12+12+10+10=44X8=352/105=3.35 Arron will need 4 gallons of paint.

1000 square feet to paint? You can paint 400 feet squared with one gallon. so you need to know how high the wall is 8 feet high by 1000 feet 8x1000 = 8000 square feet divided by 400feet per a gallon = 20 gallons one coat. just x the amount of coats you want to do and your good to go. You realy need to measure each wall and go HxL divided by 400feet per a gallon and this will tell you how many gallons will be needed to paint each wall and corner.

There is a formula used to calculate how much paint you need to paint a room. Determine what the square feet of the room you are painting is and multiply it by the number of coats you want to put on the walls. Divide that number by 400 and you will end up with the number of gallons of paint you need. The other choice is to use an online paint calculator.
