Answer

$200 \text{ ft}^3$ Note that this is an approximation rounded to the nearest hundred.

Work Step by Step

Convert by multiplying $\dfrac{1 \text{ ft}^3}{7.48 \text{ gal}}$ to obtain: $\require{cancel} z=1496 \cancel{\text{ gal}} \cdot \dfrac{1\text{ ft}^3}{7.48 \cancel{\text{ gal}}} \\=\dfrac{1496}{7.48} \text{ ft}^3 \\=200 \text{ ft}^3$
