1.39 ${\text{m}}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

You should know that 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters and that 1 centimeter is ${10}^{-} 2$ meters. These are the conversion factors you will need.

So,

8.50 "in"^3=8.50 " in"^3xx((2.54 " cm")/(1 " in"))^3xx((1 " m")/(10^2 " cm"))^3

The inches and centimeter units will then neatly cancel out. Plugging this into your calculator gives you

$8.50 {\text{ in"^3=1.39 " m}}^{3}$
