I REALLY NEED HELP Mike poured 15 cups of water into a rectangular container measuring 10 inches by 6 inches by 9 centimeters. [1 cup = 14.44 cubic inches; 1 inch = 2.54 cm] Part A: What is the maximum volume of water that the rectangular container can hold? Show your work. Part B: How many cubic inches of water was poured into the container? Part C: What was the height of the water in the container? Show your work. Measurement is given as length by width by height.

You need to convert the centimeters into inches first. 9cm/2.54cm= total inches. Volume = l*w*h = 9*6*(9/2.54) inch^3 15cups*14.44 inch^3 = total volume of water in inches^3

210 total volume of water in inches^3?

firstly, make sure you use uniform units, for instance lets use cm 10*2.54 and 6*2.54 then find the volume i.e v=l*w*h v=[10*2.54]*[6.2.54]*9

@Calvins The rest of the question is in imperial, that's not going to go well.

im so confused.

@nukka are right, but conversion units are given, we can always convert our last answer. what do yo think?

part b: you simply multiply 15 by 14.44 =[15*14.44] cubic inch

And you get 216.66?
