Leonard starts off with 480 cubic cm of clay. then takes away three 4cm cubes... these have a volume of 4x4x4=64 cubic cm each so take away 3*64 =192 total... 480 192 = 288 cubic cm left.

now Leonard is gonna make as many 5 cm cubes with what's left. each 5cm cube has volume 5x5x5=125 cubic cm.. how many of these do you think can be made with what's left?
