    Default RE: Need some math help

    Calling any and all mathematicians . . . can someone help me figure out the conversions here . . . The measured block was 44 inches by 47 inches by 77 inches. I know how to convert to centimers (thank you internet) . . . but I have no idea on how to convert these numbers to a weight.

    convert inches to centimeter (2.540*inches) then L*W*H equals area/volumn or cm3, Multiply cm3 x grams/cm3 to figure out total grams. 453.6 grams = 1 pound therefore divide g/cm3 by 453.6 Divide that answer by 2000 pounds for a U.S short ton and then divide that by the amount the vehicle can carry and you have your answer....easy Huh???

    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Thanks for the replies . . . especially TRF. I've got to take off and do some classes at the high school soon (I'll be attempting to burn down The Pines today with some fire extinguisher classes . . . incidentally I ran into Upsalquitch yesterday at the school -- apparently he was getting some of his students to help him find Ms.TeaLee's Critter Cache but was having some issues on Stage #3), but I'll get to this later today or early next week. Thanks again.

    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
