### Question

John pours 96 litres of red oil into a rectangular container with length 220cm and breadth 40cm. Calculate, correct to the nearest cm, the height of the oil in the container

A) 11cm

B) 18cm

C) 21cm

D) 34cm

### Explanation:

volume of rectangular container = L x B x H

1 litre = 1000cm3

96 litres = $$\frac{1000cm^3}{1 litres}$$ x 96 litres

volume = 96000cm3

96000 = 220 x 40 x 11

96--- = 8800H

H = $$\frac{96000}{8800}$$

= 10.97cm

= 11cm

## Dicussion (1)

• volume of rectangular container = L x B x H

1 litre = 1000cm3

96 litres = $$\frac{1000cm^3}{1 litres}$$ x 96 litres

volume = 96000cm3

96000 = 220 x 40 x 11

96--- = 8800H

H = $$\frac{96000}{8800}$$

= 10.97cm

= 11cm
