    Answer:

    3.9 pints

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Caroline uses 6.5 pints of blue paint and white paint to paint her bedroom walls.

    2/5 of this amount is blue paint, and the rest is white paint.

    To find :

    How many pints of white paint did she use to paint her bedroom walls?

    Solution:

    Caroline uses pints of blue paint and white paint = 6.5

    Amount of blue paint out of 6.5 pint = \frac{2}{5} of 6.5 = \frac{2}{5}\times6.5

                                                                               = \frac{13}{5}  = 2.6

    Amount of blue paint = 6.5 – 2.6 = 3.9 pints

    Therefore, 3.9 pints of white paint she used to paint her bedroom walls.
