Dimensions l w h

Measured 9 5 3

Maximum 9.5 5.5 3.5

Minimum 8.5 4.5 2.5

a. Find the measured volume.

b. Find the maximum volume.

c. Find the minimum volume.

d. What is the percent error? Round to the nearest percent.

I can't figure it out!!!

For a, b and c:

Volume = l * w * h

I'm not sure if this is what you want for d.

Percent error = (min or max volume - measured volume)/measured volume
