    Complete question :

    Mathilde has 20 pints of green paint. She uses 2/5 of it to paint a landscape and 3\10 of it while painting a clover. She decides that for her next painting she will need 14 pints of green paint. How much more paint will she need to buy

    Answer:

    8 pints

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Initial Pints of green paint = 20

    For landscape use:

    2/5 * 20 = 40/5 = 8 pints

    Painting clover :

    3/10 * 20 = 60/10 = 6 pints

    Quantity left :

    Initial amount – total used

    20 – (8 + 6)

    20 – 14 = 6 pints

    Quantity needed for next painting = 14 pints

    Quantity more required :

    14 pints – 6 pints =. 8 pints
