    Part A: V = L * W * H V = 10" * 6" * 9 cm (convert 9cm to inches = 9 * 2.54 = 22.86) V = 10 * 6 * 22.86 V = 1371.6 Now all measurement are in the same unit. Part B: 1 cup is = 14.44 cubic inches So, 14.44 * 15 = 216.6 216.6 cubic inches of water have been poured into the container. Part C: The maximum volume of water that the rectangular container can hold is V = 1371.6 Mike poured 216.6 cubic inches into the pan. 216.6 = 10 * 6 * H 216.6 / 60 = 3.61
