For a snow sculpture content, snow is packed into a cube-shaped box with an edge of 8 feet. The box is frozen and removed, leaving a cube of snow. One cubic foot of snow weighs about 30 pounds. You can estimate the weight ( in pounds) of the cube using the expression 30v where v is the volume (in cubic feet) of the snow. About how much does the uncarved cube weigh?
A. 240 lbs B. 1920lbs C. 15,360 lbs D.216,000
