Mercury, a metal that is liquid at room temperature, has a density 13.5 times the density of water. How many pennies could your boat hold if we were floating it in mercury instead of water?

1. Rainshine

How big is the boat?

That's the question, it doesn't give any more info. Here is the info:

Density of water is 1.o g/cm3
Mass of a penny is 2.5 grams

3. Rainshine

I have no idea. Sorry.
