## Painting Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Painting Area.

**PA = WW * WH**

- Where PA is the Painting Area (ft^2)
- WW is the wall width (ft)
- WH is the wall height (ft)

## How to Calculate Painting Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Painting Area.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the wall width (ft).
- The wall width (ft) is given as: 10.

- Next, determine the wall height (ft).
- The wall height (ft) is provided as: 8.

- Finally, calculate the Painting Area using the equation above:

PA = WW * WH

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

PA = 10 * 8 = 80 (ft^2)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

wall width (ft) = 12

wall height (ft) = 12

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..PA = WW * WH** = ?**
