600 Sq Yds = 600 * 3 * 3 = 5400 Sq Ft. (Two 3 because of Sq Yd to Sq Ft)

450 Sq Ft requires 1 Gallon
5400 Sq Ft requires = 5400*1/450 = 12 Gallon

Answer C

Lets convert the 600 square yards

1 yard = 3 feet

=> 600 square yards = \(600 * yard^2 = 600 * (3 feet)^2 = 600 * 9 (feet)^2 = 5400\) square feet

Gallons needed to paint 600 square yards i.e 5400 square feet = \(\frac{5400}{450} = 12\)

Hence option C

450 sq feet requires 1 gallon
600 sq yard would require 600*9/450=12
it is a square yard which means 600*9 not 600*3

1 square yard = 9 square feet

Therefore 600 square yards = 5400 square feet

If 1 gallon is required to paint 450 square feet then 12 gallons will be required to paint 5400 square feet.

Option C is the correct answer.
