Q:A:### Quick Answer

**The formula used to calculate "case cube" is length times width times height, or l * w * h.** It does not matter in which order these measurements are multiplied as the same answer will be obtained.

The term "case cube" refers to a measurement used in warehousing and shipping. While the measurements of length, width, and height provide a two-dimensional view of how much floor space a container will take up, it does not provide a three-dimensional or volume calculation. Accurately calculating three-dimensional space is critical in allocating space in a warehouse, fulfillment center, or transport plane. For example, the case cube of a particular box is calculated as 10 inches by 15 inches by 10 inches, or 1,500^{3} inches.

A:

Full Answer >**To find the first quartile of a set of numbers, find the median of the lowest half of the data set.**This median is the first, or lowest, quartile in the data set. To find the third, or upper, quartile of a data set, instead find the median of the higher half of numbers in the set.Filed Under: - Q:
## How do you calculate exponential growth and decay?

A:Exponential growth and decay can be determined with the following equation: N = (NI)(e^kt). In this equation, "N" refers to the final population, "NI" is the starting population, "t" is the time over which the growth or decay took place and the "k" represents the growth or decay constant. If necessary, this equation may be rearranged to find any of these variables.
