Jimmy owns a cube-shaped container that measures $10$ inches on each side. He fills this container with water until it is half full. Then he throws ten giant ice cubes that measure $2$ inches on each side into the container. In inches cubed, how much of the container is unoccupied by ice or water?

Volume of the container  = [10 in ]^3  = 1000 in^3

 

Volume of water  =  500 in^3

 

Volume of 10 ice cubes  =  10 * (2)^3  = 80 in^3

 

Unoccupied  space  =   [ 1000 - 500 - 80 ]  =  420 in^3
