Including the bus driver, there are 15 people on a bus. During the bus ride, each person produces 750 BTUs (British Thermal Units). The interior of the bus measures 38 feet by 8.5 feet by 6.25 feet.

How many BTUs per cubic foot are produced?

Round to the nearest hundreth.

Total energy produced is  15*750 BTUs

 

volume is 38*8.5*6.25 ft3 

 

Divide total energy by volume to get the number of BTUs per cubic foot.

 

I'll leave you to crunch the numbers.
