A godown measures 60 m × 25 m × 10 m. Find the maximum number of wooden crates each measuring 1.5 m × 1.25 m × 0.5 m that can be stored in the godown.

#### Solution

The godown has its length (*l*_{1}) as 60 m, breadth (*b*_{1}) as 25 m, height (*h*_{1}) as 10 m, while the wooden crate has its length (*l*_{2}) as 1.5 m, breadth (*b*_{2}) as 1.25 m, and height (*h*_{2}) as 0.5 m.

Therefore, volume of godown = *l*_{1} × *b*_{1} × *h*_{1}

= (60 × 25 × 10) m^{3}

= 15000 m^{3}

Volume of 1 wooden crate = *l*_{2 }×_{ }*b*_{2 }× *h*_{2}

= (1.5 × 1.25 × 0.5) m^{3}

= 0.9375 m^{3}

Let *n* wooden crates can be stored in the godown.

Therefore, volume of *n* wooden crates = Volume of godown

0.9375 × *n* = 15000

n = 15000/0.9375=16000

Therefore, 16,000 wooden crates can be stored in the godown.
