## Paint Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Paint Cost.

PC = GP * CPG

- Where PC is the Paint Cost ($)
- GP is the total gallons of paint needed (gal)
- CPG is the cost per gallon of paint ($/gal)

To calculate the paint cost, multiply the gallons of paint by the cost per gallon.

## How to Calculate Paint Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Paint Cost.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total gallons of paint needed (gal). The total gallons of paint needed (gal) is given as 5.
- Next, determine the cost per gallon of paint ($/gal). The cost per gallon of paint ($/gal) is provided as 30.
- Finally, calculate the Paint Cost using the equation above:

PC = GP * CPG

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

PC = 5 * 30 = 150 ($)

Example Problem #2:** **

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total gallons of paint needed (gal) = 2

cost per gallon of paint ($/gal) = 20

Entering these values and solving gives:

PC = GP * CPG** = 40.00 **($)
