Paint Job Estimator Solution

Paint Job Estimator Scenario

 A painting company has determined that for every 115 square feet of wall space, one gallon of paint and eight hours of labor are required. The company charges $18.00 per hour for labor. They would like an application that allows the user to enter the number of rooms to be painted and the price of the paint per gallon.

The application should use input boxes to ask the user for the square feet of wall space in each room. It should then display the following information

The number of gallons of paint required

 The hours of labor required

The cost of the paint The labor charges

 The total cost of the paint job

 Input validation: Do not accept a value less than 1 for the number of rooms. Do not accept a value less than $10.00 for the price of paint. Do not accept a negative value for the square footage of wall space
