Cari is the lead architect for the city’s new aquarium. All of the tanks in the aquarium will be rectangular prisms where the side lengths are whole numbers.

  1. Cari’s first tank is 4 feet wide, 8 feet long and 5 feet high. How many cubic feet of water can her tank hold?

  2. Task_1_c7ad44e3afca3919033049a900b61265
  3. Cari knows that a certain species of fish needs at least 240 cubic feet of water in their tank. Create 3 separate tanks that hold exactly 240 cubic feet of water. (Ex: She could design a tank that is 10 feet wide, 4 feet long and 6 feet in height.)
  4. In the back of the aquarium, Cari realizes that the ceiling is only 10 feet high. She needs to create a tank that can hold exactly 100 cubic feet of water. Name one way that she could build a tank that is not taller than 10 feet.
