For Exercise 41 to 44, 1 of liquid corresponds to 7.5 gallons of the liquid.
Kianna’s aquarium is “box-shaped” with dimensions of 2 ft by 1 ft by 8 in. What is the water capacity of her aquarium in gallons.
The water capacity of Kianna’s aquarium in gallons.
The dimensions of the box-shaped aquarium 2ft by 1 ft by 8 in.
Here, we have
Of the above three given measures, height of the box is measured by the unit of inches while the other two are measured by the unit of feet.
Thus, it is necessary to convert the measure of height from the unit of inches to feet, for the units need to be uniform.
1 feet 12 inches.
feet 1 inch.
1 inch feet
8 inch feet
8 inch feet
Now, the volume of the closed box is given by the formula
