The walls and ceiling in your bedroom need to be painted, and the painters' estimates to do the work are far too expensive. You decide that you will paint the bedroom yourself. Below is the information to help you solve the problem:

• The bedroom is 14 feet 3 in. by 16 feet, and the ceiling is 8 feet high.
• The color of paint you have selected for the walls covers 75 square feet per gallon, and costs \$33.50 per gallon.
• The inside of the bedroom door is to be painted the same color as the walls.
• The ceiling will be painted with a bright white ceiling paint that costs \$28.50 per gallon but only covers 50 sq. ft. per gallon.
• Two coats of paint will be applied to all painted surface.
• The room has one window, measuring 3 ft. 4 in. by 5 ft., which will not be painted.

• Describe and discuss how you will use Polya's problem-solving techniques to determine how much it will cost to paint this room with two coats of paint (on both walls and ceiling).
• Then, using your solution strategy, determine how much it will actually cost to paint your bedroom.
• Assuming you can paint 100 sq. ft. per hour, what will be the work time needed to paint your bedroom? NOTE: Show all step-by-step calculations, include the units of measurement and round your final answers to the nearest whole measurement unit.
