There are .67 gallons of paint in a can.
A. How many cubic meters of paint are in the can?
B. How many liters of paint are in the can?
C. Imagine that all of this paint is used to apply a coat of uniform thickness to a wall of area 13m^2. What is the thickness of the layer of wet paint in metric units?

I just need to know how to set up each one, and if there is any prior knowledge I need to know like conversions.

Yes, you need to look up the conversion from gallons to cubic metres to litres.
