A bushel is a unit of volume often used to measure dry, agriculture commodities and one bushel is approximately 32 L. A 1:50 scale model of a grain bin is capable of holding 0.112 bushels. How many bushels can the full size bin hold?
The answer is 14,000 bushels, but I don't know how to get the answer. I know the answer because my assignment is a review.
