Q:
# A dumpster in the shape of a rectangular prism has a volume of 240 cubic feet. The length of the dumpster is 4 feet less than twice the width w, and the height is 1 foot less than the width.Find the equation, in terms of w, that could be used to find the dimensions of the dumpster in feet.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:240 = w (2w β 4) (w β 1)Step-by-step explanation:Volume of a rectangular prism is width times length times height.V = wlhGiven:V = 240l = 2w β 4h = w β 1Substituting:240 = w (2w β 4) (w β 1)
