# Pit

The pit has the shape of a truncated pyramid with a rectangular base and is 0.8 m deep. The pit's length and width are the top 3 × 1.5 m bottom 1 m × 0.5 m. To paint one square meter of the pit we use 0.6 l of green color. How many liters of paint are needed when we paint only the sides and bottom of the pit?
