    Answer:

    0.68 m

    Explanation:

    Since the volume of water is 310 L, and we know that 1 litre = 1 dm³. So the volume of water is V = 310 dm³. Since this volume of water is the volume of water the cubical steel tank can contain, it equals the volume of the cubical steel tank.

    We know that the volume of the cubical steel tank V = L³ where L is the length of side of the cube on the inside.

    So the length of side of the cube L = ∛V = ∛310 dm³ = 6.77 dm = 6.77 dm × 1m/10 dm = 0.677 m ≅ 0.68 m

    So, the smallest possible inside length of the tank is 0.68 m
