| **The width of a rectangular parallelepiped is 3 3/4 cm, its length is 5 1/3 times its width, and its height is 80% of its length. Calculate the volume of the parallelepiped.**

The solution of the problem.

1. Find the length of the rectangular parallelepiped.

3 3/4 cm * 5 1/3 = 15/4 cm * 16/3 = 20 cm.

2. Find the height of the rectangular parallelepiped.

20 cm * 80%: 100% = 16 cm.

3. The volume of a rectangular parallelepiped is equal to the product of all three of its dimensions.

Let’s calculate the volume of the parallelepiped.

3 3/4 cm * 20 cm * 16 cm = 15/4 cm * 20 cm * 16 cm = 1200 cm ^ 3.

Answer. The volume of a rectangular parallelepiped is 1200 cubic centimeters.
