• Where P is the Paint Price (\$/gallon)
• PA is the total purchase amount (\$)
• GP is the amount of paint purchased (gallons)

## How to Calculate Paint Price?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Paint Price.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total purchase amount (\$).
1. The total purchase amount (\$) is given as: 150.
2. Next, determine the amount of paint purchased (gallons).
1. The amount of paint purchased (gallons) is provided as: 30.
3. Finally, calculate the Paint Price using the equation above:

P = PA / GP

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

P = 150 / 30 = 5.00 (\$/gallon)
