Hi,

Here is the question.

How many cubed pieces of fudge that are 3 inches on an edge can be packed into a Christmas tin that is 9 inches deep by 12 inches wide by 8 inches high with the lid still being able to be closed?

A. 18
B. 24
C. 32
D. 36
E. 42

I thought C (32) is the corrct answer. But it is B. Can anyone tell why? Has it anything to do with the lid!!

Since the height of the cube is 3 and the height is of the tin is 8, you can only stack two layers of fudge and not 3. Therefore you will have 4*3*2=24.

Would "deep" make you think that is the height of the can? Thats poorly worded if you ask me.
