# The cross section of a rectangular tank measures 1.2m by 0.9m if it contains fuel to depth of 10m, find the number of litres of fuel in the tank (1m^3 = 1000litres)?

Fuel in the tank color(purple)(V = 10,800 litres

#### Explanation:

Volume of a cuboid $V = l \cdot b \cdot h$

Given $l = 1.2 m , b = 0.9 m , h = 10 m$

$V = 1.2 \cdot 0.9 \cdot 10 = 10.8 {m}^{3}$

$1 {m}^{3} = 1000 l i t r e s$

:. color(purple)(V = 10.8 * 1000 = 10,800 litres
