rachel/411 2 years ago Joe owns a toy car collection. Each car is stored in a box that is 3 in long,2 in high, and 2.5 in wide. He has 40 cars and wants to pack them in a large box. Estimate the volume of a box that would be enough to hold the rp toy cars.

1. hartnn

find the volume of small box first. do u know how to ?

2. rachel/411

um.....3*2*2.5?

3. hartnn

exactly!

4. rachel/411

12 in^3?

5. rachel/411

yay!:)

6. rachel/411

12*40?

7. hartnn

now the big box contains 40 such small boxes, so the volume of big box is 40 times volume of small box. Exactly again!

8. hartnn

how did u get 12 ??

9. rachel/411

um i did 3*2*2.5

10. hartnn
