    Ms Patei can fit 20 calculators in the box

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Ms. Patel wants to keep her classroom calculators in a box

    • The box is 25 centimeters long, 15 centimeters wide, and 5 centimeters tall
    • The calculators measure 12 centimeters long, 7 centimeters wide, and  1 centimeter tall

    We need to find how many calculators Ms. Patei can fit in the box

    ∵ The box is 25 centimeters long

    ∵ The calculator is 12 centimeter long

    ∵ 12 × 2 = 24 ⇒ nearest value to 25

    ∴ She can fit 2 calculator in the side of 25 centimeters

    ∵ The box is 15 centimeters wide

    ∵ The calculator is 7 centimeter long

    ∵ 7 × 2 = 14 ⇒ nearest value to 15

    ∴ She can fit 2 calculator in the side of 15 centimeters

    Two long and two wide means 4 calculator can fit in the base of the box

    of 25 centimeters long and 15 centimeters wide

    ∴ She can fit 4 calculator in the base of the box

    ∵ The box is 5 centimeters tall

    ∵ The calculator is 1 centimeter tall

    ∵ 5 ÷ 1 = 5

    ∴ She can fit 5 calculators in the side of 5 centimeters

    ∴ She can fit 5 rows of 4 calculators in the box

    ∴ The number of calculators she can fit in the box = 5 × 4 = 20

    Ms Patei can fit 20 calculators in the box

    Answer:

    22 calculators

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    • A box:  25 centimeters long, 15 centimeters wide, and 5 centimeters tall
    • The calculators : 12 centimeters long, 7 centimeters wide, 1 centimeter tall

    We know all the 3 dimensions in the box and the calculator, so now we need to find the volume of each one.

    The box volume:

    = Length*Width*Height

    25 *15 * 5 = 1875 cm^{3}

    The calculator volume:

    = Length*Width*Height

    12 *7 * 1= 84 cm^{3}

    So the number of calculators Ms. Patei fit in the box is:

    \frac{Volume of the box}{Volume of the caculator} = \frac{1875}{84} ≈22 calculators

    Hope it will find you well.
