If an average rectangular block of limestone used to build the Great Pyramid of Khufu at Giza is approximately 2.5 feet by 3 feet by 4 feet and limestone weighs approximately 170 pounds per cubic foot, what is the weight of one of the nearly 2,300,000 limestone blocks used to build the pyramid?

    the volume of one cube is : 2.5*3*4 = some # (ft^3) if you take some # and multiple it by 170 you will have the weight one one block :)
