    start by finding the volume of the cubic blocks. \[V = s^3\] where s = 1/5

    then divide the given volume of the case by the one you found to get the answer

    that's the volume of the small box. You need to divide that into the volume of the big box to get the amount \[\frac{ 4 }{125 }\div \frac{ 1 }{ 125 }\]

    when you divide, flip the 2nd fraction to its reciprocal and multiply |dw:1436449252981:dw|
