The student that used the least amount of paint for their art project was student 3.

### How to compare the amount of paint each student used?

The first step to comparing the amounts of paint is to make sure all the amounts are expressed in the same way. This implies converting the amounts into the same units. In this case, the best is to use numbers rather than factions or percentages as shown below:
• Student 1 : One and one half that can be expressed as 1.5
• Student 2: 70% or 0.7 (70 / 100 = 0.7)
• Student 3: 8/17 = 0.47
• Student 4: 0.65 (There is no need to make changes)

### What student used the least amount of paint?

Based on the above, it can be concluded the student that used the least amount of paint was student 3 because this student used only 0.47.
