Including the bus driver, there are 12 people on a bus. During the ride, each person produces 725 BTUs (British Thermal Units). The interior of the bus measures 39 feet by 7.25 feet by 6.5 feet.

How many BTUs per cubic foot are produced?

Make sure your answer is rounded to the nearest hundredth.

I used this question to help do it. :)

 

(total number of BTUs) / (total number of cubic feet)

= (725 * 12   BTUs) / (39 * 7.25 * 6.5   ft3)

= 8700 BTUs / 1837.875 ft3

≈ 4.73  BTUs / ft3
