How many books can be shelved in a college library with 3500m^2 of floor space. Assume 8 shelves high, having books both sides, with corridors 1.5m wide. Assume books are about 0.25m deep and 0.05m wide Please, help.

If I'm interpreting the problem correctly, then it could be modeled something like this...? 1 length of shelves would be 0.5 m wide (0.25 per side), and then a corridor of 1.5m to the next shelf. 1 LEVEL of such a length of shelving would have 20 books per m, per side, or 40 books per linear meter. There are 8 levels to the shelving, so 8*40=320 books per linear meter of "footprint". And that linear meter accounts for 2m of width (0.5 for shelf and 1.5 for the corridor). So every 2 sq. m has a capacity of 320 books...? |dw:1378168953073:dw|

From that, it should be easy enough to compute total capacity.
