    Part A: What is the maximum volume of water that the rectangular container can hold? Show your work. (3 points) convert all the measurements to the same units (convert the 10 cm to in). Then multiply the 3 of them to calculate the volume in cubic inches. Part B: How many cubic inches of water was poured into the container? (3 points) multiply the volume of one cup (14.44 cubic inches) by the number of cups (15 cups) to find the total volume in cubic inches. Part C: What was the height of the water in the container? Show your work. (4 points) divide the Volume calculate in B by the area of your container (10 in x 6 in) to calculate the height in inches.

    length by width by height = volume then height = volume / (length by width) length by width = area
