    i need help with this problem

    The base of the pyramid is 100 blocks by 100 blocks; each successive layer is one less block wide and deep, until the top layer which is simply one block. Each block is 97 cm wide by 97 cm deep by 63 cm tall.

    If one liter of paint can coat exactly three square meters, how many liters are required to coat the entire exposed surface of the pyramid? Round up to the nearest liter.
