ms.smith has a new fish aquarium that measures 45.3 cm long, 23.4 cm wide and 28 cm high. She has had a problem with the fish jumping out of the tank. today she is cleaning and decides to fill the tank to a level that is 4cm from the top to see if that will help. how mmany litres of water does she need to fill her aquarium?

  1. Reiny

    She will need to fill a volume of 45.3 by 23.4 by 24 (4 cm short of the 28cm)

    Since 1 L of water = 1000 cm^3 of water
    divide your answer by 1000 to get litres.

    (I got about 25.5 L)
