The volume of a rectangular slab of concrete needs to exceed 72cu.ft. If the length is 12ft. and he width is 8ft. How thick does the concrete slab need to be?

  • Math -

    Volume of a slab
    =Width*length*height
    Width=8'
    Length=12'
    We have then
    Volume = 12*8*height >72
    Solve for height
