The ice compartments of a refrigerator is 8 inches long, 4 inches wide and 5 inches high. How many ice cubes will it hold if each cube is 2 inches on an edge?

A. 8

B. 10

C. 12

D. 16

E. 20

Since our calculation is relatively straightforward, we'll just do it.

This is a Precise approach.

8/2 = 4 icecubes fit in the length.

4/2 = 2 icecubes fit in the width.

5/2 = 2.5 so only 2 icecubes fit in the height.

In total, 4*2*2 = 16 icecubes fit.

(D) is our answer.
