Please check me.
A box has dimensions of 19 inches long, 1.7 feet wide, and 6 inches high. What is the volume of the box? The formula for the volume is V = l ⋅ w ⋅ h.
Wouldn't the answer be 193.8 cubic inches?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you multiply 19 in. by 1.7 ft by 6 in., you get 193.8 ft * in^2. Notice the strange units ft * in.^2. That is because 2 dimensions are in inches and one dimension is if feet. In order to get a volume in cubic inches, you need to convert the width that is in ft into inches. 1.7 ft * 12 in./ft = 20.4 in. Now multiply all three dimensions in inches to find the volume in cubic inches,. V = 19 in. * 20.4 in. * 6 in.
