A water delivery truck with a cylindrical tank measuring 8 ft in diameter and 8 ft long dispenses
water to drought victims in cartons measuring 6 in. × 6 in. × 12 in. How many victims will get a full
container of water?

  • Geometry -

    each 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.
