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.

The volume of the rectangular container is given by the formula: V = L*W*H V = 10" * 6" * 9 cm V = 10 * 6 * 22.86 (22.86 = 9 * 2.54 to change the 9 cm to inches) V = 1371.6 cubic inches @LegendaryNikki Please check this and let me know what you think, okay?

@LegendaryNikki I'm waiting for you.

I dont know what to do @Directrix

You could start by checking the volume work above. @LegendaryNikki

I dont know how to check it thats how bad i am at algebra.. @Directrix

B) Mike poured 15 cups of water into the container. 1 cup = 14.44 cubic inches @LegendaryNikki --Here's something you can do --Multiply 14.44 times 15 and post what you get.

@LegendaryNikki Post this product so we can finish this --> -Multiply 14.44 times 15 and post what you get.

216.6

Okay, so 216.6 cubic inches is the answer to this: Part B: How many cubic inches of water was poured into the container?

okay

And, this may be the answer to Part A if you check it: V = L*W*H V = 10" * 6" * 9 cm V = 10 * 6 * 22.86 (22.86 = 9 * 2.54 to change the 9 cm to inches) V = 1371.6 cubic inches

okay

yes

@Directrix

The pan's capacity is V = 1371.6 cubic inches. Mike poured 216.6 cubic inches into the pan.

216.6 = 10 * 6 * h 216.6 = 60 h h = 216.6 / 60 h = ? @LegendaryNikki --> Please divide 216.6 by 60 and post what you get.

3.61

Okay, then the height of the water Mike poured into the pan is 3.61 inches. So, that's it, I think.

Thank you @Directrix

You are welcome.

@LegendaryNikki

@Directrix You're supposed to divide by 2.54 to find the inches.
