Karim built a toolbox that has a length of 1 1/2 foot and a width of 1 foot.

If the volume of the toolbox is 3 3/4 cubic feet,what is the height of the toolbox?

Answer

[tex]l-length\\w-width\\h-height\\\\\times w\times h\\\\l=1\frac{1}{2}ft=\frac{3}{2}ft\ w=1ft\ V=3\frac{3}{4}ft^3=\frac{15}{4}ft^3\\\\\frac{3}{2}\times1\times h=\frac{15}{4}\\\\\frac{3}{2}h=\frac{15}{4}\ \ \ \ \ \ \ |multiply\ both\ sides\ by\ \frac{2}{3}\\\\h=\frac{15}{4}\times\frac{2}{3}\\\\h=\frac{5}{2}\\\\h=2\frac{1}{2}\ (ft)\\\\\ is\ 2\frac{1}{2}ft.
