Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In step 1, you found the volume (in cubic feet) of the main tank. If the maximum density of killer whales per cubic foot is 0.000011142, what is the maximum number of killer whales allowed in the main show tank at any given time? You must explain your answer using words, and you must show all work and calculations to receive credit. My answer for step one was Volume=359,189. I know the volume for Density is mass/volume. So do I just divide 0.000011142 by 359,189?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I meant I know the formula for density is mass/volume.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1formula for density is mass/volume D = m/v mis the mass and v is the volume

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah that's what I said. So I just plug in my answer from step 1, into v and the m is the number given in the problem? (0.000011142)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{0.00001}{359189}=2.78405E11\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well 359,189 was my rounded answer from step 1. Should I do the whole number?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the density is 11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It said to use the density formula, but the questions is asking what is the maximum number of killer whales allowed in the main show tank at any given time?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, the problem gave me the density.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It says the maximum density of killer whales per cubic foot is 0.000011142.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What is the volume of the main tank? If you want the max. number of killer whales allowed in the main tank, calculate this: (Whale occupational density in Whales per cubic foot) * (Tank volume in cubic feet) Assuming that you found that the tank volume in cubic feet is 179503, then your calculation seems appropriate. Watch those units of measurement! Whalescubic/foot∗cubic.feet=number.of.whales

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And I have to figure out what is the maximum number of killer whales allowed in the main show tank that has a volume of 359,189

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So am I trying to figure out the mass?

Unofficialllyy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So does this mean I have \[0.000011142=\frac{ mass }{ 359,189 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You found the volume to be 359,189 cubic feet You're given a density of whales per cubic feet. That's how many whales there are in ONE cubic foot. So we need a lot of cubic feet for just one whale. You multiply the two like so dw:1437266784801:dw

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1notice how I set up the density so that the "cubic feet" units cancel dw:1437266871172:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and I multiply the two to get 4.00208384

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oops I meant to write `You're given a density of 0.000011142 whales per cubic feet. `

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1round down to get 4

Unofficialllyy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So approx 4 whales to each tank

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can have at most 4 whales in the tank
