The depth of the ocean is sometimes measured in fathoms (1 fathom = 6 feet). Distance on the surface of the ocean is sometimes measured in nautical miles (1 nautical mile = 6076 feet). The water beneath a surface rectangle 2.70 nautical miles by 2.00 nautical miles has a depth of 28.0 fathoms. Find the volume of water (in cubic meters) beneath this rectangle.

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

Convert all measurements to meters;

2.70  n. miles=16,405.2 feet =5002.15 meters

2.00 n.miles =12,152 feet=3705.30 meters

28 fathoms=168 feet=51.22 meters

multiply all of them

5002.15* 3705.30*51.22

=949,335,368.8 cu. Meters.

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