# Maths question watch

1. There was a question in our paper the other day and it was asking what is the least number of bottles u can fit into this box. The answer was 28.945 but since you can't have a fraction of a bottle, would the answer be 28 bottles or 29 bottles?

Are you 100% sure that was the question? The least number of bottles you can fit into any box is 0...

Always round down for these types of questions.

You can fit up to 28.945, so you can certainly between put 0 to 28 bottles.
