Explanation is in the file
Since the shape of the truck isn't given and the volume, we will make some assumptions. You can solve this problem if you have the complete one by following the same procedure. Lets assume:Shape of Truck is CuboidThe dimensions of the Truck is 9 by 9 by 9
First, we need to find the volume of the cuboid truck.
Volume is basically 3 dimensions multiplied together. So that would be:
Volume of Truck = 9 * 9 * 9 = 729 cubic feet
Each box has a volume of 9 cubic feet. To get number of boxes that evenly fit the truck, we would need to divide the truck's volume by volume of each box.
729/9 = 81 boxes
