Convert meters to cm

 

5m  = 500cm

3m = 300cm

2m = 200cm

 

The volume of the storage room  is

 

(500 * 300 * 200) = 30,000,000 cm^3

 

And the volume of each box  = (10 * 6 * 4)  =  240 cm^3

 

So.....the number of boxes that will fit  =

 

30,000,000 / 240   =    125,000

 

 

cool cool cool

Behind each other: 500cm :10cm = 50

Next to each other: 300cm :   6cm = 50

Above each other  : 200cm :   4cm = 50

 

50*50*50 =125000
