Total Volume is 288000

Given LBH = 8*10*12.

the number of hats inside it = 288000/10 * 8 * 12 = 300.

price of each hat is 7.5 $ then total value is 300 * 7.5 = 2250.

IMO option E is correct answer..

OA please...will correct if I missed anything...

Number of boxes= Total volume/volume of one box= 288,000/ (8*10*12)= 300

One box costs 7.50, so 300 box will cost= 300*7.5= 2250

E is the answer
