Touch the correct can, then tap Submit.

UK Version

This old brick wall has been decorated with an unusual design.
Five different shapes have been painted on a white background as shown.
Just by looking at the picture, you should be able to tell which colour of paint was used the most. So, which one was it?

Touch the tin of paint that was used the most.

It wouldn't be incorrect to calculate the area of each color. But...there's got to be an easier way.

You're not wasting time counting the bricks in each colored shape, are you?

Even so, as long as you aren't missing something, you should figure it out.

The colors to paint this wall were blue, green, yellow, and black... Is that all?

No matter how big each shape is painted, none can be bigger than the background!



Too bad.

Think about if you had painted it yourself.


US Version


Without a doubt, the white paint used as the background cover's the most area.

UK Version

That's right!

The white background used the most paint, without a doubt.
