clint's cowboy shop buys horse feed for $10 per cubic meter, Clint's customers don't like the metric system, so they'll only buy horse feed by the cubic foot. how many cents should clint charge for a cubic foot in order to double his money? (assume 1 meter equals 3.28 feet and answer as a whole number of cents.)

I m^3 =35.29^3 feet
$10 x 100 =1,000 cents
1,000 / 35.29 =28.34 cents - his cost per foot^3
28.34 x  2 =56.68 =~ 57 cents per cubic foot. So that:
0.57 x 35.29 =~$20

1 m^3 = 3.28 ft x 3.28 ft x 3,28 ft = 35.288 ft^3

 

$10 = 10 x 100=1000 cents

To double his money:

1000 cents/ 35.288 ft^3   x   2 = ~~ 57 cents/ft^3
