A truck whose bed is 2.5m long, 1.5m wide, and 1m high is delivering sand to a construction site. How many trips must the truck make to deliver 7? cubic meters of sand? Plese explain your answer.

  • Physical Science -

    7/(2.5*1.5*1) = 1.866
    so, the truck must make 2 trips, since 7m^3 is more than one load (3.75 m^3)
