when inflated, a rubber lifeboat takes the form of rectangular box of dimensions 2mx1.5x40cm. with out any load, it floats. how many 60kg people can it carry before water flows into it? assume that the density of seawater is 1025g/cubic meter.

Is the 1.5 dimension meters?
Are those inside (passenger area) or outside dimensions?
