2-76.

James is painting his $10$-by-$8$-foot bedroom wall that contains a $2$-by-$3$-foot window.

1. Draw a diagram of his wall and the window.

There should be one rectangle with a smaller rectangle inside it. Remember to include labels and units..

2. How many square feet of wall does he need to paint?

James does not want to paint his window, so the answer is NOT $80$ square feet.
