    a. V = Af*h = 1800Ft^3,
    Af * 8 = 1800,
    Af = 225Ft^2 = 15x15Ft = Area of floor,

    Dimensions = 15x15x8Ft.

    b. 15Ft = 180 in.
    Width = 180in / 72 = 2.5 in.

    c. Vs = Vl/3 = 1800Ft^3,
    Vl/3 = 1800,
    Vl = 5400 Ft^3 = Volume of large unit.

    d. Vl = Af*h = 5400Ft^3,
    Af*8 = 5400,
    Af = 675Ft^2 = L*W,
    Let W = 15Ft,
    15L = 675Ft^2,
    L = 45Ft.

    Floor = 45 x 15 Ft.
