### Volume

This is a unit of three-dimensional measure of space that comprises a length, a width and a height.
It is measured in units of cubic centimeters in metric, cubic inches or cubic feet.
Each gift box = 1/3 cubic feet of hard candies.
Large container:
• base = 2 feet
• Height = 1 1/2 feet
• Width = 1 feet
Volume of the large container = base × height × width
= 2 × 1 1/2 × 1
= 2 × 3/2 × 1
= 6/2
= 3 cubic feet
Number of hard candies in the large container =Volume of the large container / Each gift box
= 3 ÷ 1/3
= 3 × 3/1
= 9 hard candies
Therefore, there are 9 hard candies in the large container.
