Answer:

#3.39xx10^5 " ft"^3#

Explanation:

First, you need the conversion factor of meters to feet:

#1 " m"=3.281 " ft"#

Next, convert each edge of the room:

length = #40 " m"xx(3.281 " ft")/(1 " m")=131 " ft"#

width = #20 " m"xx(3.281 " ft")/(1 " m")=65.6 " ft"#

height = #12 " m"xx(3.281 " ft")/(1 " m")=39.4 " ft"#

Then, find the volume:

volume = length #xx# width #xx# height

volume = #131 " ft"xx65.5 " ft"xx39.4 " ft" = 3.39xx10^5 " ft"^3#
