Shiloh wants to buy a long lasting candle. Type 1 candle melts by 19.5 cm each hour. Type 2 candle melts by 0.15 inch each minute. Both the candles have the same original height.
[1 inch = 2.54 cm
Part B: If the original height of the candles was 40 cm, and you checked on its height every 30 minutes after lighting it, describe appropriate scales on the xaxis and yaxis to graph the rate at which the slower candle melts. (5 points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Could you help with one more Jane poured 12 cups of water into a rectangular container measuring 12 inches by 8 inches by 9 centimeters. [1 cup = 14.44 cubic inches; 1 inch = 2.54 cm] Part A: What is the maximum volume of water that the rectangular container can hold? Show your work. (3 points) Part B: How many cubic inches of water was poured into the container? (3 points) Part C: What was the height of the water in the container? Show your work. (4 points) @only_hanaaa
