E campsite shop also sells boxes of Pick-Me-Up teabags. The base of each box is a 120 mm square. The shelf where the boxes are displayed is a 65 cm x 35 cm rectangle. Work out the maximum number of boxes that will fit on the shelf.

The maximum number of boxes that will fit on the shelf = 189 boxes

Step-by-step explanation:

First, to harmonize the units of the dimensions given, let us convert the unit of the Pick-Me-Up teabags to cm.

1 cm = 10mm

1mm = 0.1cm

∴ 120mm = 0.1 × 120 = 12cm

Therefore, the base of each box is 12cm²

Next, let us calculate the area of the shelf.

Dimension of shelf = 65cm × 35cm

∴ Area of shelf = 65 × 35 = 2275cm²

Therefore, to calculate how many boxes will fit into the shelf, we will divide the area of the shelf by the area of the boxes of Pick-Me-Up teabag. This is shown below.

Area of shelf = 2275cm²

Area of boxes = 12cm²

Number of boxes that will fit on the shelf = Area of shelf ÷ Area of boxes

= 2275 ÷ 12 = 189.58 boxes

since there are no fractional boxes, we will round down to the nearest whole number of boxes.

Hence, the maximum number of boxes that will fit on the shelf = 189 boxes

If ur asking how many boxes can fit, its 19also how is this an english question

Step-by-step explanation:

Length of tea bag = 120 mm

Converting to cm,

= 12 cm

Length of shelf = 65 cm

No of teabags in the vertical part of the shelf = 65/12

= 5

Width of tea bag = 120 mm

Converting to cm,

= 12 cm

Width of shelf = 35 cm

No of teabags in the horizontal part of the shelf = 35/12

= 2

Total number of boxes of teabags = 5 × 2

= 10
