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

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 The calculator volume:

= Length*Width*Height

12 *7 * 1= 84 So the number of calculators Ms. Patei fit in the box is: = ≈22 calculators

Hope it will find you well.
