# Number of Boxes on Pallet and Total Weight Calculation

## How many boxes can fit on one pallet based on the given data?

Box weight = 10 lb

Pallet weight = 40 lb

Maximum pallet height = 50"

Box dimensions = 10" x 8" x 6"

Pallet dimensions = 45" x 45" x 6"

## Answer:

Based on the information provided, approximately how many boxes can fit on one pallet?

To calculate the number of boxes that can fit on one pallet, we first need to find out the dimensions of the pallet. From the given data, we know that:

Pallet dimensions = 45" x 45" x 6"

The volume of the pallet can be calculated as follows:

Volume of pallet = 45 x 45 x 6 cubic inches = 12150 cubic inches

To calculate the number of boxes that can fit on one pallet, we need to find out the volume of each box. The dimensions of each box are given as follows:

Box dimensions = 10" x 8" x 6"

Volume of each box = 10 x 8 x 6 cubic inches = 480 cubic inches

Now we can calculate the number of boxes that can fit on one pallet as follows:

Number of boxes per pallet = Volume of pallet ÷ Volume of each box = 12150 ÷ 480 = 25.3125 (approximately 25 boxes)

Therefore, we can fit approximately 25 boxes on one pallet.
