volume of 1 box is 15*12*10 cubic inches

volume avaible=1.08*10^6 cubic inches

no. of box=1.08*10^6/(15*12*10)=600

cost for 1 box=.25
for 600 box=600*.25=150 A

Answer choices aren't really close to each other in value, so non-dramatic rounding wont hurt.

1800 cu in = 2000 cu in

1,080,000= 1,000,000 cu in

1000 / 2 = 500 * .25 = $125

only thing in ball park is $150.

Answer is A
