Q:

a cereal box has dimensions of 2 in., 5 1/3 in., and 10 3/4 in. If the box contains 8 servings, how much volume does each serving take up?

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Volume is found by length multiplied by width multiplied by height. Therefore our first equation is 2 multiplied by 5 and 1/3 or 16/5 as a mixed number multiplied by 10 3/4 or 43/10 as a mixed number. This will give us the total volume. As there are 8 servings, we will need to divide by 8 or multiply by 1/8 to find the volume of each serving. The final answer is 86/25 which simplified to 3 and 11/25
