# The dimensions of a rectangular water tank are 2 m 75 cm by 1 m 80 cm by 1 m 40 cm. How many litres of water does it hold when filled to the brim?

Answer :

We know that,

1m = 100 cm

Therefore,

Dimensions of the tank will be: 2m 75cm × 1m 80 cm × 1m 40cm

= 275 cm × 180 cm × 140 cm

We know that,

Volume of cuboid = Length × Breadth × Height

= 275 × 180 × 140

= 6930000 cm^{3}

We also know that,

1000 cm^{3} = 1L

Therefore,

Volume =

= 6930 Litres
