Given: \textbf{Given: }

The size of the car's tank is 12.5 U.S.gal12.5 \mathrm{~U.S.gal}. We know that 1 U.S.gal=3.79 L1 \mathrm{~U.S.gal} = 3.79 \mathrm{~L}. Also, we know that 1 L=61.024 in31 \mathrm{~L} = 61.024 \mathrm{~in^{3} }. The cubit is cubit=18 incubit = 18 \mathrm{~in}.

Required: \textbf{Required: }

(a) Finding the size of car's tank in cubic inches.

(b) Finding the size of car's tank in cubic cubits.
