Stones in aquarium

In an aquarium with a length of 2 m, 1.5 m wide, and 2.5 m deep, the water is up to three-quarters of the depth. Can we place 2m cubic meters of stones in the aquarium without spilling water? (0 = no, 1 = yes)

Correct answer:

x =  0

Step-by-step explanation:

a=2 m b=1.5 m c=2.5 m  V=a b c=2 1.5 2.5=215=721=7.5 m3 V1=43 V=43 7.5=845=585=5.625 m3  V2=V1+2=5.625+2=861=785=7.625 m3  V2>V x=0
