Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The volume of the rectangular box will come from multiplying the length by width by height. Because the bags of sand are in cubic feet, change the dimensions so that they are in terms of feet.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, so how would I do that. How would I set this up to solve it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, get the volume in terms of cubic feet. The length of the sand box is 3 feet, width is 6 inches, and height is 2.4 inches. V = 3 * (6/12) * (2.4/12) cubic feet. Simplify that. Then, there's a little more to do.
