If Stan packs the cans in rows, and is careful to arrange the cans so that he fits in the maximum number possible, how many cans will fit in the box?


The number of cans he can fit in each row along the length of the box is 4 because \(13 \div 3=4 \frac {1}{3}\). Since \(10 \div 3= 3 \frac {1}{3}\), the number of rows he can fit along the width is 3. The total number of cans that fit is \( 4 \times 3 = 12\)
