Lowe's Math and Paint Colors

One day, Todd and Isaac went to Lowe's to pick up some primer to start painting the family room. While Todd was reading the primer to figure out how much to get, he told Isaac that they will need 2 gallons for one coat. So Isaac asks how many coats they were going to do. Todd responded with "2". Without even pausing to think, Isaac responds with, "well we will need 4 gallons then."

Also while there Isaac decided to pick out some paint color. Well he picked an orange that he just loves. Later at supper, we were discussing paint colors for the basement. I gently tried to tell Isaac that we may not use the color that he picked because it is up to the mom and dad to pick the color. I told him that when he got older that he and his wife could pick the colors. Todd added, "actually Isaac it is usually the girls that get to pick the colors." Of course Isaac didn't like that idea and said the he would just tell his wife "the way it goes." So I just had to ask. "really how will it go?"

Isaac then explained to me that he and his wife will have 28 rooms and they will each get to pick 14 colors. Wow that will be a big, colorful house.
