A box is measured to be 2.3 m by 4.2 m by 3.5 m. What is its volume in cubic centimeters (cc)?

Thanks

2.3 x 4.2 x 3.5 = 327.81 cubic meters then times that by 100 which = 32781.

If each dimension were given in centimeters instead of meters, it would be:

230cm x 420cm x 350cm = 33,810,000 cubic centimeters =

33.81 x 100 x 100 x 100.

Yes, that is the answer I'm getting also, but it keeps telling me I'm wrong.

Argh.

we've tried entering it as 33810000 cubic centimeters, 33,810,000 cubic centimeters, 3.381 x 10^7 cubic centimeters....

Is that how you type out 10 to the 7th?
