Anonymous asked:I just posted your blog on my fb but aren't you afriad of then getting an overwhelming number of questions and you'll be quite stressed? anyways thanks for this great site! Please help me on this question: A rectangular solid has length 20 centimeters, width 5 centimeters , and height 10 centimeters. How many of these rectangular solids when combined have a volume of 1 cubic meter? (1 meter = 100 cm).
Haha…I am a LITTLE afraid of that. :)
To get started on this question, first convert all those measures to meters. So 20 cm = 0.2 m, 5 cm = 0.05 m, and 10 cm = 0.1 m.
The volume of your box, in cubic meters, is (0.2 m)(0.05 m)(0.1 m) = 0.001 m^3.
How many of those do you need to have a cubic meter? 1/0.001 = 1000.
