i get about 300 SF per gallon, so what's your wall SF? not floor SF (22x24 you say)

assume 8 foot ceilings, perimeter = 22+22+2*22 (to account for dividing wall) +24+24 = 92 linear feet of walls

92 * 8 = 736 wall SF, so i'd buy 3 gallons.

labor cost? material is about $100, so i'd guess $150-200 labor for simple cut in and roll out with one color

not being a painting contractor, but by my guessing and math:

materials - $100
labor guess - $200

total - $300.

but you also need to figure that few contractors will take on a job that small, as they then need to add an hour each way to get there and get home, so don't be surprised if you get quotes above $500, as it would be unlikely that they'd be able to string 2 small jobs together into one full day of work.

Even $825 is a reach, but it's probably a minimum they would come out for. Funny that painting has become cathartic for me, like mowing the lawn. Gotta get into the Zen

A tip for what? Getting way overcharged for what you had done? Unless they did something super-special no way would I give a tip at that price.
