Answer:

1. 360 cubic inches

2.(a)360 Cubic Inches, the owner is wrong

(b)6 in X 1 in X 1 in.

Step-by-step explanation:

1. Dimension of the box

Length=9 inch

Width=1 inch

Height=1 inch

Volume=LWH

=9*1*1 =9 Cubic Inches

Volume of the stack( of 40 candles)

=40*9

=360 Cubic Inches

2. Dimensions of Ella’ Box are:

Length=10 inch

Width=6 inch

Height=6 inch

Volume=LWH

=10*6*6

=360 Cubic Inches

(a)The owner is not correct. The Volume of Ella’s box is equal to the volume of the stack.

(b)Since the Width of the box is 6 Inch, the owner could cut the boxes into dimensions of 6 inX1 inx1 in.

It means each level will contain

(6*10) candles.

There will be 6 layers which equals the exact volume of Ella’s box.
