When folded, a 12-by-12-foot section of the AIDS Memorial Quilt requires about 1 cubic foot of storage. In 1996, the quilt consisted of 32,000 3-by-6-foot panels. What was the quilt’s volume in 1996? If the storage facility had a floor area of 1,500 square feet, how high did the quilt panels need to be stacked?

    what is so hard about this? I explained twice already. If one panel is 18, 2 panels are 36, so 32000 panels are?

    okay. read through this slowly and understand what I am saying. One panel has an area of 18 square feet. 2 panels have area 2 times 18 square feet = 36 square feet. so 32000 panels have area = ?

    yes, so 144 sq. feet can be folded into 1 cubic feet. so how many cubic feet does 576000sq feet require?
