**beth needs 5 1/4 quarts of paint to paint some walls .**

if paint cost $13.99 for one quart how much will it cost her

**Answer**

It will cost Beth $73.45.

You can multiply 5 by 13.99 to get how much 5 quarts costs.

5 x 13.99=$69.95 Now, how do we find how much 1/4 of a quart costs?

You just divide 13.99 by 4.

13.99 / 4=$3.4795 All you have to do now is just add the cost of 5 quarts to the cost of 1/4 of a quart.

69.95 + 3.4795=$73.4475 Now you just round to get your final answer.

$73.4475 >> $73.45
