A carton of milk in the shape of a rectangular prism has a leak. The dimensions of the carton are 8 inches by 4 inches by 3 inches. If the rate in which the milk is leaking is 6 cubic inches per minute, how long would it take for the milk carton to completely empty?

Volume of a rectangular prism = length x width x height.

Volume of milk carton = 8 x 4 x 3 = 96 cubic inches.

Divide the volume by the leak rate:

96/ 6 = 16

It will take 16 minutes.

answer: the proof is mentioned below.

step-by-step explanation:

since, given:   lines bc = ef

prove:   lines ac > ef

statements                                           reason

1. bc=ef                                           1. given

2. ac= ab+bc                                 2. because b is the point between the

line segment ac

3.   ac > bc                                       3. because if a line segment is equal to

the sum of two line segments then it is

always greater then each of these

individual line segments

4. ac > ef                                         4. by equality property.
