a, 1 l - 3 m^2, 55.84m^2 needs more

= 55.84/3 x 1

= 18.61 x  coats = 37.23 liters are needed

b . if 1 litre tins are used 38 tins are needed = 38 x60 =R2280

if 5 litre tins are used 8 tins are needed = 220 x 8 = R1760

if 10 litre tins are used 4 tins are needed =4 x 400= R1600

if 20 litre tins are used 2 tins are needed = 2 x 750 = R1500

20 litre tins are cheaper
