Question 1.
Lyon is making a toolbox as shown.

A. What are the dimensions of the box?
Length: _____________
Width: _____________
Height: _____________
Length = 3.4 in
Width = 6.8 in
Height = 2.3 in

Explanation:
From the given figure we can measure the dimensions of the box.
The dimensions of the box are l = 3.4 in, w = 6.8 in and H = 2.3 in

B. Complete the volume equation.
V = l × w × h = × ×
V = l × w × h = 3.4 × 6.8 × 2.3

Explanation:
Given,
l = 3.4 in, w = 6.8 in and H = 2.3 in
V = l × w × h = 3.4 × 6.8 × 2.3

C. What is the volume of the box?
_________ cubic inches, or _________ in3
53.17 cubic inches or in3

Explanation:
Given,
l = 3.4 in, w = 6.8 in and H = 2.3 in
V = l × w × h
= 3.4 × 6.8 × 2.3
= 53.17 cubic inches or in3

D. Lyon wants to paint the toolbox. To do so, he needs to know the surface area of the toolbox. Find the surface area of the toolbox.

The surface area of the toolbox is = 61.88 square inches.

Explanation:
Given,
l = 3.4 in, w = 6.8 in and H = 2.3 in
Surface area = 2 (wl+hl+hw)
Surface area = 2 ((6.8 × 3.4) + (2.3 × 3.4) + (2.3 × 6.8))
Area = 2 ((23.12) + (7.82) + (15.64))
Area = 2 ( 30.94)
The surface area of the toolbox is = 61.88 square inches.

E. A tube of paint covers 40 square inches. How many tubes of paint should Lyon buy? Explain.
Lyon bought 2 tubes of paint

Explanation:.
The surface area of the toolbox is = 61.88 square inches.
tube paint cover 40 square inches
Lyon bought $$\frac{61.88}{40}$$ = 1.5 = 2 tubes of paint.

Turn and Talk Why do you think volume is measured in cubic units?
While calculating the volume we need to multiply all three dimensions. Therefore, volume is measured in cubic units such as cubic meters, and cubic inches.

Question 2.
A large rectangular shipping container has a volume of 12$$\frac{3}{8}$$ cubic feet. The shipping container is 2$$\frac{1}{5}$$ feet long and 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ feet wide. What is the height of the shipping container?
The height of the shipping container = $$\frac{4}{9}$$ feet.

Explanation:
Given,
Volume = 12$$\frac{3}{8}$$ cubic feet = $$\frac{99}{8}$$ cubic feet
Length = 2$$\frac{1}{5}$$ feet = $$\frac{11}{5}$$ feet
width = 2$$\frac{1}{2}$$ feet wide = $$\frac{5}{2}$$ feet wide
We need to find height of the shipping container.
Volume = l × w × h
Volume = $$\frac{11}{5}$$ × $$\frac{5}{2}$$ × h
$$\frac{99}{8}$$ = $$\frac{11}{5}$$ × $$\frac{5}{2}$$ × h
h = $$\frac{11}{5}$$ × $$\frac{5}{2}$$ × $$\frac{8}{99}$$
h = $$\frac{4}{9}$$ feet.

Question 5.

Math on the Spot Aubrey has a suitcase with a volume of 2200 cubic inches. The length of the 16.5 in. suitcase is 25 inches and the width is 11 inches. What is the height of Aubrey’s suitcase?
The height of Aubrey’s suitcase is 12.12 inches.

Explanation:
Given,
Volume = 2200 cubic inches.
l = 16.5 in, w = 11 inches and we need to find the height
Volume = l × w × h
2200 = 16.5 × 11 × h
h = $$\frac{2200}{(16.5 × 11)}$$ in.
h = 12.12 inches.

Question 6.
A rectangular prism has a length of 2$$\frac{3}{5}$$ inches and a width of 1$$\frac{2}{5}$$ inches. If the prism has a volume of 10$$\frac{23}{25}$$ cubic inches, what is the height of the prism? Explain how you found your answer.
The height of the prism is 0.33 inches.
Given,
l = 2$$\frac{3}{5}$$ inches = $$\frac{13}{5}$$ inches
w = 1$$\frac{2}{5}$$ = $$\frac{7}{5}$$
Volume = 10$$\frac{23}{25}$$ = $$\frac{273}{25}$$
Volume = l × w × h
$$\frac{273}{25}$$ = $$\frac{13}{5}$$ × $$\frac{7}{5}$$ × h
h = $$\frac{7}{5}$$ × $$\frac{13}{5}$$ × $$\frac{25}{273}$$
h = $$\frac{(7×13×25)}{(5×5×273}$$
h = $$\frac{2275}{6825}$$
h = 0.33 inches.
