The density of ice is 916.7 kilograms per cubic meter at 0 degrees Celsius under atmospheric pressure. Columbia Glacier, in Alaska, loses about 4 billion metric tons of ice each year. About what volume of water melts from the glacier each year?

Im confused about this question, can someone help me out?
