Volumes of Prisms and Cylinders
You are painting a room in your house. Unfortunately, you lost the lid to the 5 gallon bucket of paint, but you only used half of the paint. You want to save the paint, so you plan on transferring it to a new container. The new container is shaped like a rectangular prism. If there are originally 1,155 cubic inches of paint in the 5 gallon bucket, is your container big enough to fit the paint that is left over? Remember that half the paint is left in the bucket.
