## How the Calculator Works

This calculator computes the total cost of paint required by multiplying the total painted area by the number of layers and dividing by the paint coverage to get the number of gallons needed, and then multiplying by the cost per gallon. The formula used is:

Total Area = Height x Width x Number of Walls x Number of Layers Gallons Required = Total Area / Coverage Cost = Gallons Required x Cost per Gallon
