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

First you must convert all the units to meters and centimeters.

1ft=30.48 centimeters

41.0ft x 30.48= 1249.68cm

28ft x 30.48= 853.44cm

8 x 30.48= 243.84cm

Volume of cube is L x Wx H

1249.68cm x 853.44cm x 243.84cm= 260,061,919.100928 cubic centimeters

or 260,061,920 cubic centimeters (by summing up).

Next convert all the units to meters

1 ft= .3048 m

41.0 x .3048= 12.4968m

28 x .3048= 8.5344m

8 x .3048= 2.4384m

12.4968m x 8.5344m x 2.4384m= 260.06191900928 cubic meters

or 260 cubic meters (by summing up).

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