(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A solid object floats with 54% of its volume beneath the surface of the water. What is the object’s density? Give answer in g/cm3.

2. Relevant equations

Density = mass/ volume

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the density must be more than one, because the object is floating somewhat, but I don't know how to calculate what the density is, exactly. If anyone has a better formula for this problem, I'd much appreciate it.
