The capacity of a rectangular tank is 5.2cubic metre and area of its base is 2.6Ã—1000 square centimetres.find its height

1. 0
2. 1
1. 2.6Ã—1000 shows up on my computer as illegible.

Volume = area of base x height
but of course we must have the same units
5.2 cubic metres = 5,200,000 cm^3

so divide 5200000/(2.6Ã—1000 ) to get the height in cm.
