Sam wants to pack some candies into a box with a volume of 1.5 cubic meters. Each candy has a volume of 1 cubic centimeter. How many candies will fit in the box?

• arithmetic -

1 m = 100 cm

1 m ^ 3 = 100,000 cm ^ 3

1.5 m ^ 3 = 150,000 cm ^ 3

150,000 candies

• arithmetic -

Sorry correction.

100 * 100 * 100 = 1,000,000

1 m = 100 cm

1 m ^ 3 = 100 * 100 * 100 = 1,000,000 cm ^ 3

1.5 m ^ 3 = 1,500,000 cm ^ 3

1,500,000 candies
