Jeff put a small box that is 12 inches long, 8 inches wide, and 4 inches tall inside a box that is 20 inches long, 15 inches wide, and 9 inches high. How much space is left in the larger box?

V = lwh

V = 12 * 8 * 4

V = 384 sq. in

Figure the volume for the larger box -- and then subtract the smaller from the larger volume.

12 x 8 x 4 = 384

20 x 15 x 9 = 2700

2700 - 384 = 2316

Answer: 2316
