The volume is ${\text{25.0 cm}}^{3}$.

Explanation:

Density equation

"density"=("mass")/("volume")

Solution
Rearrange the density equation to isolate volume. Substitute the given values into the equation.

"volume"=("mass")/("density")

"volume"=(282.5color(red)cancel(color(black)("g")))/(11.3color(red)cancel(color(black)("g"))/"cm"^3")$=$$\text{25.0 cm"^3}$
