Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1. mr. adam should choose quarter-inch cubes because 1/4 is divisible by 4.5, 5, and 8.5

2. 4.5/(1/4)=18, 5/(1/4)=20, 8.5/(1/4)=34, so he needs 765 cubes 

3. method 1: 72*(1/4)=765/4 in^3

    method 2: 4.5*5*8.5=191.25 in^3

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
