Allan keeps tropical fish. His aquarium is 4 feet long, 1 foot wide, and 2 feet tall. Each fish needs at least 0.5ft³ of water. What is the maximum number of fish that he can keep in the aquarium? Please show your solution. Please

Result

n =  16

Solution:

a=4 ft b=1 ft c=2 ft  V1=0.5 ft3  V=a b c=4 1 2=8 ft3  n1=V/V1=8/0.5=16  n=n1=16=16a=4 \ \text{ft} \ \\ b=1 \ \text{ft} \ \\ c=2 \ \text{ft} \ \\ \ \\ V_{1}=0.5 \ \text{ft}^3 \ \\ \ \\ V=a \cdot \ b \cdot \ c=4 \cdot \ 1 \cdot \ 2=8 \ \text{ft}^3 \ \\ \ \\ n_{1}=V/V_{1}=8/0.5=16 \ \\ \ \\ n=\lfloor n_{1} \rfloor=\lfloor 16 \rfloor=16
