    Cans of Paint

    Paint is supplied in 1-Litre and 5-Litre cans. The price of paint for the undercoat is $180 for a 5-Litre can and $45 for a 1-Litre can.

    a. What quantity of a 1-Litre and/or 5-Litre cans of the paint for the undercoat should you buy for the kennel?
    b. What is the cost of the paint for the undercoat?

    I can't help but suspect that you are told something about the size and geometry of the kennel, that you are keeping from us!
