An aquarium has a length of 20 inches, a width of 10 inches, and a height of 18 inches. The directions tell you to fill the aquarium until you have a 2-inch gap between the top of the water level and the top of the aquarium. What is the volume of the water?

    Your water-level height will be 18 - 2 or 16. So now, you get the volume of water by V = w x L x h where you use the new "h" of 16. w = 10 and L = 20

    Actually, your volume V is: V = w x L x h V = 10 x 20 x 16
