To find the total number of cans of paint Jason has used after painting 8 chairs, we will substitute the number of chairs (c) with 8 in the equation p = 6c + 12.3.

So, if c = 8: p = 6 * 8 + 12.3 p = 48 + 12.3 p = 60.3

Therefore, if Jason paints 8 chairs, he will have used a total of 60.3 cans of paint.

To find the total number of cans of paint used, we can substitute the number of chairs painted (c) into the equation provided:

p = 6c + 12.3

Given that Jason paints 8 chairs, we set c = 8 and calculate:

p = 6(8) + 12.3 p = 48 + 12.3 p = 60.3

Thus, if Jason paints 8 chairs, the total number of cans of paint used would be 60.3 cans.
