  1. 1. Vt = 187*89*77 = 1,281,511 in^3 per truck.

    Vb = 24*14*27 = 9,072 in^3 per box.

    9,072in^3/box * 200boxes = 1,814,400 in^3 of space needed.

    1,281.511*N = 1,814,400.
    N = 1,814,400/1,281,511 = 1.4 or 2 trucks.

  2. 2. Iguana food:
    V = pi*r^2*h = 3.14 * 3^2 * 8 = 226.1 in^3.

    Hamster food:
    V = 3.14 * 2.5^2 * 10 = 196.3 in^3.
