a. V = Af*h = 1800Ft^3,

Af * 8 = 1800,

Af = 225Ft^2 = 15x15Ft = Area of floor,

Dimensions = 15x15x8Ft.

b. 15Ft = 180 in.

Width = 180in / 72 = 2.5 in.

c. Vs = Vl/3 = 1800Ft^3,

Vl/3 = 1800,

Vl = 5400 Ft^3 = Volume of large unit.

d. Vl = Af*h = 5400Ft^3,

Af*8 = 5400,

Af = 675Ft^2 = L*W,

Let W = 15Ft,

15L = 675Ft^2,

L = 45Ft.

Floor = 45 x 15 Ft.
