Holly works in a stable. She's throwing straw into a stall that's 12 feet long by 8 feet wide. If she throws 12 cubic feet of straw each minute, how many minutes will it take until the straw in the stall is 2 feet deep?

    12 x 8 x 2 is the number of cubic feet of straw she must throw.

    |dw:1357741721028:dw| Can you see that when finished, the stall will have a "box" of straw 8'x12'x2' hight?

    She throws 12 cubic feet each minute so divide the number of cubic feet by 12 and that will be the number of minutes.
