11-11.

Joaquin’s friend wants help finding the volume of his cracker box. He measured it and found that it was $6$$\frac { 1 } { 3 }$" wide, $9$" tall, and $3$$\frac { 2 } { 3 }$" thick. Use the method of your choice to help him find the volume of the cracker box.

Remember, to find the volume of a box, you multiply the area of the base by the number of layers (the height).

$\text{Area of the base}\ =\ \left ( 6\frac{1}{3} \right )\left ( 3\frac{2}{3} \right )\ =\ 23\frac{2}{9}$

Now, multiply this by $9$, the height, to find the volume! Be sure to use the correct units.
