We need to determine how many rows of cartons will be required for 1,200 cartons. Number of rows x 5 x 7 = 1,200 Number of rows = 1,200 ÷ 35 = 34.29 We will have at least 34 rows of cartons on the floor, 5 cartons wide, stacked 7 high. How many cartons are there within this load? 34 x 5 x 7 = 1,190 cartons.

Answers Ocean Freight Page | 179 2017 We still have 10 to load, so in front of this there will be an additional row that will be 5 cartons wide and stacked 2 cartons high. Therefore, we have used up 35 rows x 12 in = 420 in of floor space. This gives us 474 in 420 in = 54 in of floor space at the door. Is there room for the remaining 20 cartons of toilet paper? We have lots of room for one row of toilet paper, 5 cartons across, stacked 4 cartons high. Summary: We require the total of 3 x 40-ft standard containers: x 2 x 40-ft standard containers containing 490 cartons of toilet paper in each. Weight = 490 x 12 lb = 5,880 lb = 2,667 kg per container. x 1 x 40-ft standard container containing 1,200 cartons of baby formula and 20 cartons of toilet paper. Weight: 1,200 x 30 lb = 36,000 lb = 16,330 kg 20 x 12 lb = 240 lb = 109 kg Total: = 16,439 kg Weights check out within maximum limitations.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
