Jim is filling his rectangular pig trough full of slop. The trough is 3 ft wide, 8ft long, and has a depth of 4 ft. One of the piglets jumps in the trough and the slop rises 2.8 inches. What is the volume of the trough?


To compute for the volume of the trough, use the formula:
\(\text { Volume }=\mathrm{L} \times \mathrm{W} \times \mathrm{H}=8 \mathrm{ft} \times 4 \mathrm{ft} \times 3 \mathrm{ft}=8 \times 4 \times 3=96 \text { cubic feet }\)
The information about 2.8 inches rise in slop is unnecessary.
