Accepted Solution

A:

The volume of 100 pages of the book is 20 in³.

Explanation:

Since the book is rectangular, we use the formula for the volume of a rectangular prism: V = l*w*h.

Using the measurements of the book we have

V = 10*8*(3/4) = 80*(3/4) = 240/4 = 60 in³.

However, 100 out of 300 pages means we want 100/300 = 1/3 of the book: 60(1/3) = 60/3 = 20 in³.
