. A cereal box is 1 foot tall, of a yard wide and 2 inches thick. How many cubic inches of cereal can the box hold?

Jul 16th, 2015

first convert all the given details into inches

then we need to find the volume of cereal box to know the content it can hold

1foot = 12 inches

1 yard = 36 inches

so volume = length * breadth *height

=12*36*1

=432 cubic inches

Find the approximate area and round to the nearest tenth. Use p ≈ 3.14:

the diameter is 12 ft

=6^2 * p

=113.0973 square feet

= 113.10 square feet

I got 113.04. am i wrong

Jul 16th, 2015

no you are not wrong the difference is because you used p=3.14 which is approximate value I used a much precise value p=3.141592654
