The answer is going to be \$27.00

Step-by-step explanation:

2. Answer: it will cost \$27 to completely fill the sandbox with sand.

Step-by-step explanation:

The sandbox is rectangular in shape. The formula for determining the volume of a rectangular box or cuboid is expressed as

Volume = length × width × height

The new sandbox that was is 3m long, 2m wide, and 1m high. This means that the volume of the new sandbox is

3 × 2 × 1 = 6m³

Sand for the sandbox costs \$4.50 per cubic meter. It means that the cost of sand that would completely fill the sandbox is

6 × 4.5 = \$27
