The The geometrics decide to play a concert in the gym. The gym measures 100 feet long by 60 feet wide by 30 feet tall. The band asks the stage crew how loud they can play in the gym. After some experimenting, the stage crew calculates that the band can turn up the amplifier volume one notch for every 18,000 ft.³. So how loud can the geometrics have their amplifiers in this room?

1 Answer

  • So what you do is multiply 60, 30, and 100 together to get 180,000. Then divide 180,000 by 18,000 (simplify it to 180 ÷ 18) and the answer is 10. So they could turn it up 10 notches.
