    Answer:

    \boxed{\text{8.7 gal}}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The volume V of a prism is the area of the base b times the height h.

    V=bh

    Step 1. Calculate the volume of the prism.

    Data:

    b = 100 in²

    h = 20 in

    Calculation:

    V = 100 in² × 20 in =2000 in³

    Step 2. Convert cubic inches to gallons

    1 gal = 231 in³

    V = \text{2000 in}^{3} \times \dfrac{\text{1 gal}}{\text{231 in}^{3}}} = \textbf{8.7 gal}\\\\\text{The water jug will hold } \boxed{\textbf{8.7 gal}}
