Q:
# Sam stores manure for his farm in a rectangular box. The length of the box is 7 feet, width is 9 inches, and height is 6 inches. Each bag of manure he bought contains 2.625 cubic feet of manure. How many bags of manure will fill the box completely?

Accepted Solution

A:

The answer is 1 bag.

length of the box is = 7 feet

width is = 9 inches

and height is = 6 inches

Each bag of manure he bought contains = 2.625 cubic feet of manure

The volume (V) of the rectangular box is:

V = l × w × h

where l is length, w is width and h is height

Now you see that the unit of volume is cubic feet, first convert width and height into feet which are in inches

width = 9 inches = 0.75 feet

height = 6 inches = 0.5 feet

Now, V = l x w x h

=7 x 0.75 x 0.5

= 2.625

Now Each bag of manure he bought contains 2.625 cubic feet of manure which is equal to the volume of box.

Thus, the answer is only 1 bag will fill the box completely.
