there are 1000 cells/inch

so, in 66 inches, there are 66000 cells

This is a poorly worded problem, however, since it does not say anything about width and depth. It appears that a cell is considered to be a thin slice, 1/000" thick, across the whole body.

BOGUS problem!

Or, you have not included everything given. :-(
