Please help with maths HW? watch

1. PLEASE HELP WITH THIS HW:

George’s friend Julie has just moved in to her new house. She has decided to decorate her house. She wants to make sure that she has enough money saved to complete the decorating.
She would like to do the following bits of work:

Paint the kitchen walls
 Tile the downstairs bathroom floor

She has done research at the local DIY stores and discovered that:

1. Paint costs £4.40 per litre.
2. The tiles that she likes measure 33 cm by 33 cm.
￼3. The kitchen measures 3.5m by 7.1m and has a height of 2.5 m.
4. Floor tiles come in packs of 9.
￼5. Paint must be bought in multiples of 5 litres.
6. The downstairs bathroom measures 3.2 m by 2.8 m.
7. The upstairs bathroom measures 5.2 m by 3.0 m.
8. ￼A pack of floor tiles costs £11.99.
￼9. Paint covers 6㎡per litre.

She has currently saved £170. Is this enough?

Moved to the Maths forum
First split the information into sections (eg. all the information about the painting the kitchen in one section etc.)
You should be able to work out what area is being painted/tiled in each case.
Then how much paint/many titles are needed
Then the cost of that and if it is greater or less than £170
Let me know how you get on
