    Trina uses 3.44 or \frac{ 17.2}{5} pints of white paint

    Solution:

    Given that,

    Trina uses 8.6 pints of blue paint and white paint to paint her bedroom walls

    3/5 of the amount is blue paint, and the rest is white paint

    From given,

    3/5 of 8.6 pints is blue paint

    Remaining = 1 - \frac{3}{5}\\\\Remaining = \frac{2}{5}

    Thus, 2/5 of 8.6 pints is white paint

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

    White\ paint = \frac{2}{5} \times 8.6\\\\White\ paint = \frac{17.2}{5}\\\\White\ paint = 3.44

    Thus she uses 3.44 or 17.2/5 pints of white paint
