Like is it just a 3 dimensional "foot"? Like a cube that's 1 foot long, 1 foot wide, and 1 foot tall?

#2

Yes.

#3

Yup.

Yup.

Ok so second question. 9 cubic feet... would that be a space that's 3 feet tall, 3 feet wide, and 3 feet long?

no, you have to multiply them, 3 times 3 is 9 times 3 is 27...or its 3 to the 3rd power....

i do believe.

i think a 1 by 1 by 1, would be 1 cubic foot....i mean think about it,

if you were adding it would be perimeter, if your multiplying into cubes, its volume

volume is found by Length x Width X Height

That's 3 square feet.

9 cubic feet would be a space that's ~2.08 feet tall, ~2.08 feet wide, and ~2.08 feet long.

(~2.08 feet) cubed = 9 cubic feet.

Edit:

That's an area, not a volume. And it would be 27 cubic feet. 3 feet x 3 feet x 3 feet = 27 feet cubed.That's 3 square feet.

9 cubic feet would be 9 cubes 1 ft x 1 ft x 1 ft stacked on top of each other...

Take a square. Each length is a mile in length. That area covering that square is a square mile, because in order to work out the area of the square, you need to square it (that is, times the length by itself - so mxm). A cubic mile would be the volume of a cube, and to work out a volume of a cube, you cube a length (that is, times a length by itself twice). It's mxmxm. That's your (unit here) square and cubric (unit here) for you.

It's an uncommon disease where a person is born with perfectly squared feet. This is called 'Cubed Feet'. When a person has just one of these it is referred to as a 'Cubic Foot'

#12

When your foot is oddly cubic shaped....

Yes.

Yes.

#13

well thanks guys now I'm really confused

#14

9 cubic feet would be a space that's ~2.08 feet tall, ~2.08 feet wide, and ~2.08 feet long.

(~2.08 feet) cubed = 9 cubic feet.

Edit:That's an area, not a volume. And it would be 27 cubic feet. 3 feet x 3 feet x 3 feet = 27 feet cubed.

This person is correct

#15

Yes.

#16

Ah yes Ok I see that makes sense now. 2x2x2 = 8. Throw in the .08 and you get 9.

Thanks!

Thanks!

#17

1 square foot = 1 foot * 1 foot

2 square feet = 2 feet * 2 feet

1 cubic foot = 1 foot * 1 foot * 1 foot

2 cubic feet = 2 feet * 2 feet * 2 feet

Utterly incorrect.

#18

1 square foot = 1 foot * 1 foot

4 square feet = 2 feet * 2 feet

1 cubic foot = 1 foot * 1 foot * 1 foot

8 cubic feet = 2 feet * 2 feet * 2 feet

Fixed...?

#19

1 square foot = 1 foot * 1 foot

2 square feet = 2 feet * 2 feet

1 cubic foot = 1 foot * 1 foot * 1 foot

2 cubic feet = 2 feet * 2 feet * 2 feet

Holy shit, math fail.

Did you never learn about square numbers or are you trying to **** with the OP's head?
