a) Which package is the heaviest?


b) To find out how much the shipping will cost, Rosalie needs to calculate the
dimensional dimensional weight of each package. For each package, multiply length (L) ×
weight width (W) × height (H), and then divide by 6000. (Dimensional weight is
LxWxH important to companies that ship packages for a fee. Even if a package
6000 doesn’t weigh much, it may take up a lot of room in a plane or truck. That
means it should cost more to ship that package.)
c) If the actual weight is greater than the dimensional weight, the package
costs more to ship. Which package will have an extra charge?
