Enter the wall width (ft) and the wall height (ft) into the Painting Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Painting Area. 

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:

  1. First, determine the wall width (ft). 
    • The wall width (ft) is given as: 10.
  2. Next, determine the wall height (ft). 
    • The wall height (ft) is provided as: 8.
  3. 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 = ?
