. A certain shade of gray paint is obtained by mixing 3 parts of white paint with 5 parts of black paint. If 2 gallons of the mixture is needed and the individual colors can be purchased only in one-gallon or half- gallon cans, what is the least amount of paint, in gallons, that must be purchased in order to measure out the portions needed for the mixture?

2.5 gallons?

6/8 for the white paint- 1 gallon
10/8 for the black- 1.5 gallons

so 2.5 gallon would be the least.

2nd question is a good one!!
