a)24.0 cubic inches b)2.0 cubic inches

Work Step by Step

In this problem, we need to find the volume. The formula for volume is: $\pi r^2 h$ Looking at the photo shown in the textbook, we see that: $r=1.2$, $h=5.3$ When we plug these into the formula we get: $\pi 1.2^2 5.3$ When we simplify this further, we get: $\pi 1.4( 5.3)$ Finally when all is simplified, we get: $24.0$ cubic inches (when rounded to the nearest tenth) Next, it asks you: What is the volume of one fluid ounce? This is a lot simpler than it seems. Since we already found the volume of the 12 ounces, all we need to do is divide the volume by 12 to get the volume of one fluid ounce. $24.0 $ cubic inches $\div$ $12 $ ounces $=2.0$ cubic inches Therefore, your answers are: a)$24.0$ cubic inches and b)$2.0$ cubic inches
