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?

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
