Hi, we are from Mariposa Elementary School in California. Our latitude
and longitude is
120 N 37 W. We think we have found the answer to your question
"How many butterflies in a space this big 120 inches by 120 inches by 12
You said that there were 400 butterflies in 1 cubic foot. Then we drew
a picture of
1 cubic foot. Then we drew another square, and labeled it in inches 120
x 120 inches. We
then changed the inches into feet which there was 10 feet in 120
inches.The box was 1
foot deep. Altogether there was 100 cubic feet in the square. Since
there was 400
butterflies in one cubic foot you have to times 10 x 400 because which
squares 40,000.
The answer is 40,000 butterflies in the room.
