A whole block of modeling clay is a right rectangular prism six inches by two inches by one inch. How many whole blocks need to be unwrapped to mold a cylindrical sculpture seven inches high and four inches in diameter?

Volume of clay block =  lxwxh  =6x2x1= 12 in^3


Cylinder volume = pi r^2 h  =    pi (2)^2 7 = 87.965 in^3


87.965/12= 7.33 clay blocks ~ 8 clay blocks
