    Answer:

    They used 2.3 liters of red paint

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Henri and Talia are mixing paint for an art project.

    They mixed amount of red paint = p liters

    They mixed amount of blue paint = 0.6 liters

    They mixed amount of white paint = p-0.4 liters

    Total amount of paint = p +0.6 +p – 0.4 = 2p+0.2

    They then divided the mixture  evenly into 2 jars.

    Amount of paint in 1 jar = \frac{2p+0.2}{2}

    We are given that Each jar contains 2.4 liters of paint

    So, \frac{2p+0.2}{2}=2.4

    2p+0.2=2.4 \times 2

    2p+0.2=4.8

    2p=4.8-0.2

    2p=4.6

    p=\frac{4.6}{2}

    p=2.3

    Hence They used 2.3 liters of red paint
