I went with the volume of the contain as 2,160' with the volume of the peanut bags as 343' so I said 6.3 bags is that right?

**drwls**, Tuesday, May 13, 2008 at 4:01amThe volune of the container (2160 ft^3) is OK, but I interpret the peanut bag volume as being 7 ft^3, not 7^3 = 343 ft^3.

2160/7 = 308 bags

**Damon**, Tuesday, May 13, 2008 at 8:33am7 ft^3 or 7 feet cubed means 7 cubic feet

If a cube it means length of one side cubed = 7

or the length of one side = about 1.91 feet.

Admittedly the statement is kind of confusing. To get 343 ft^3 they would have to say that the volume of a bag was 343 ft^3.
