Answer: 19.6Step-by-step explanation: Since 5 is an uneven number and you can only spilt it by using decimals so is 7. multiplying 7 and 5 make 35 which doesn’t work. And since there can only be 5 buckets of brown paint for every 7 buckets of white paint will have to be splitter by decimals 19.6 is the best answer Iv’e gotten I actually had to really think so I hope this is correctAnswer:the answer is B 19.6 gallons

hope this helps
