A crate full of sugar cubes has a volume of 3 cubic feet. The volume of each sugar cube is 0.5 cubic inch. How many sugar cubes are there in the crate?

• math -

1 ft = 12 in

1 ft ^ 3 = 12 ^ 3 in ^ 3

1 ft ^ 3 = 1728 in ^ 3

3 ft ^ 3 = 3 * 1728 = 5184 in ^ 3

5184 / 0.5 = 5184 * 2 = 10368 sugar cubes
