Volume please help

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Suppose you have a quantity of water with a volume measurement of 1,535 +/- 10 ml. This quantity of water is to be transferred into a regular orthogonal container whose interior dimensions measure 15.0 +/- 0.1 cm long, 10.0 +/- 0.1 cm wide, and 10.0 +/- 0.1 cm deep. If you attempt to pour the water into the container, it may fit or it may just fit or it may not fit. Predict whether the water will fit and provide the justification for your answer.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Welcome to PF!

    May I ask why you left the areas below "2. Relevant equations" and "3. The attempt at a solution" blank? Surely you must have some idea!

    Oh well, because it's Thursday, here's a hint... you could start by expressing the volume of the container as "... +/- .... cm³".
    How much ml is that?
