Mrs. Nelson has a rectangular flower box that is 5 feet long and 2 feet tall. She wants the width of the box to be no more than 5 feet. If the width is a whole number what are the possible volumes for the flower box.
So the question is to find the volumes of Mrs. Nelsons rectangular flower box whos width can't be longer than 5 feet and a whole number and we know the length a=5 feet and depth b= 2 feet. So we have 5 volumes that differ only in length c that will be c1=1 feet, c2=2 feet, c3=3 feet, c4=4 feet and c5=5 feet. V1=a*b*c1=5*2*1=10 feet^3, V2=a*b*c2=20 feet^3, V3=a*b*c3=30 feet^3, V4=a*b*c4=40 feet ^3 and V5=a*b*c5=50 feet^3.
