**Reiny**, Sunday, November 22, 2009 at 11:10pmeach box has a volume of

(.5)(.5)(1) cubic feet

= .25 cubic feet

the water tank has a volume of

pi(4^2)(8) cubic feet

= 402.1239 cubic feet

how many times does .25 go into 402.1239 ?

402.1239 ÷ .25 = 1608.5

so 1608 victims will get a full container.
