A block of ice is exposed to heat in such a way that the block maintains a similar shape as it metls. The block of ice is initially 2' wide, 2 'high, and 3' long. If the change in the width of the ice is -1/3 ft/hr, find: the amount of time it will tak efor the block of the ice to completely melt.

I found that the rate of change in the volume of the ice block is -3/2 ft^3/hr. Do you just divide the volume of the cube (12 ft^3) by the rate of change of the volume (-3/2 ft^3/hr)?
