Homework Statement


Two type of "barrel" units were in use in the 1920s in the United States. The apple barrel had a legally set volume of 7056 cubic inches. The cranberry barrel, 5826 inches. If a merchant sells 50 cranberry barrels of goods to a customer who thinks he is receiving apple barrels, what is the discrepancy in the shipment volume in liters?

The Attempt at a Solution



7056x50=352800 inch^3
5826x50=291300 inch^3

352800-291300=61500 inch^3
61.02 inch^3= 1 Litter

61500/61.02=1007.86 IS THIS RIGHT???????
